The Commonwealth of Ellenburg is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 14.018 billion Ellenburgians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellenburg City. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ellenburgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,466 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,607 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellenburg's national animal is the bobcat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ellenburg is ranked 265,077th in the world and 23rd in Autropolis for Most Patriotic, with 0.59 flags saluted per person per day.
