The Holy Kingdom of Ellbonnia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 4.025 billion Ellbonnians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ptolemaeus. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellbonnian economy, worth 827 trillion Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 205,470 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Ellbonnian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, and doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellbonnia's national animal is the Usean bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ellbonnia is ranked 273,093rd in the world and 12,856th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.37 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
