The Commonwealth of Elparia Founder is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.229 billion Elparia Founderians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 32.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Elparia Founderian economy, worth 149 trillion Elparian Standards a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,410 Elparian Standards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elparia Founder's national animal is the Elparian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elparia Founder is ranked 70,610th in the world and 11th in Elparia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,125.1 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
