The Heavily-Legged Strongmen of ElJefe is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Snorlax with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 35.343 billion Jefes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snorlaxia. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The ElJefean economy, worth a remarkable 7,696 trillion Dongs a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 217,759 Dongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, the government loves seeing the little people fight, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ElJefe's national animal is the Dao, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ElJefe is ranked 13,400th in the world and 748th in Osiris for Most Corrupt Governments, with 71.4 Kickbacks Per Hour.
