The Commonwealth of Ellenburg is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 11.303 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 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ellenburgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,159 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,548 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, and the government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 152,690th in the world and 13th in Autropolis for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 29,328.88 Standard Monetary Units.
