The Espan Democracy of Elthicshire is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Aln Koresol with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 6.36 billion Elthiards are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Domilton. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elthic economy, worth 691 trillion Elbas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,721 Elbas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Everyone hates people who encourage hate, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, and balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elthicshire's national animal is the mockingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Espalism.

Elthicshire is ranked 81,685th in the world and 3,614th in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,175.66 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
