The Nomadic Peoples of Elijaia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elijah Dale with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.728 billion Elijaians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Border Terrier City. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Elijaian economy, worth 254 trillion Olympias a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,343 Olympias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Elijaians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elijaia's national animal is the Border terrier, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Elijaia is ranked 30,001st in the world and 1,580th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 66.8 on the Human Development Index.
