The Royal Confederacy of Eluvatar is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Presiding Steward Beregond ArFinn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.501 billion Eluvatarans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romenna. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Eluvataran economy, worth a remarkable 4,475 trillion Romennan Dukats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 151,698 Romennan Dukats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, the logging industry is celebrating as tourists plaster Eluvatar with trees, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eluvatar's national animal is the Lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of Eru.

Eluvatar is ranked 53,876th in the world and 9th in Taijitu for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,610.71 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
