The Holiest Empire of Empire of Elysium is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Robert III with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.513 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 76.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Elysiumite economy, worth 473 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 134,825 Elysium merit cards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 410,613 per year while the poor average 34,358, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", the government is known to care more about its buildings than its people, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Elysium's national animal is the Rattle snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Empire of Elysium is ranked 13,969th in the world and 1st in Empire of Elysium for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,387.76 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
