The Empire of Elysinos is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Evangelos Bourus with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The devout population of 2.693 billion Elysinosians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oceanun. The average income tax rate is 53.6%.

The thriving Elysinosian economy, worth 242 trillion Elysian Claws a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,160 Elysian Claws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Elysinosians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, high school bands practice by moonlight, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, and people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elysinos's national animal is the Hermit Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Elisionism.

Elysinos is ranked 54,692nd in the world and 16th in Novo Brasil for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 53.61 Effective Tax Rate.
