The Holy Imperial Invictus of Ellsonian Dominion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Ellsonian I with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.35 billion Ellsonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Divinitus Monstrum. The average income tax rate is 70.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellsonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,915 trillion Sonians a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 378,271 Sonians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, the country is preparing for war, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Ellsonian Liberator". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellsonian Dominion's national animal is the Dread Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ellsonian Dominion is ranked 1,017th in the world and 36th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 1,328.91 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
