The Worst union citizen of Empire of Elysium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Robert III with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.276 billion Elysiumites 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople II. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Elysiumite economy, worth 746 trillion Elysium merit cards a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,460 Elysium merit cards, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 654,173 per year while the poor average 18,454, a ratio of 35.4 to 1.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, there's no weight to modern politics, and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Elysium's national animal is the Rattle snake and its national religion is Christianity.

Empire of Elysium is ranked 4,874th in the world and 1st in Heart for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 11,627.06 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
