The Holy Imperial Invictus of Ellsonian Dominion is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Kelly Kimonious Ellsonian I with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.422 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, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Divinitus Monstrum. The average income tax rate is 49.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellsonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,831 trillion Sonians a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 336,183 Sonians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and Ellsonian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump. 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, and its national religion is Imperial Truth.

Ellsonian Dominion is ranked 661st in the world and 12th in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 34,755.21 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
