The Elven Court of Santese is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sylvana Fingolfin with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 4.859 billion Eldarins are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elacrai. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Eldarin economy, worth 677 trillion Lasses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,446 Lasses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Elacrai to enjoy their national art, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Santese's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eldar Religion.

Santese is ranked 193,734th in the world and 54th in Novo Brasil for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.25 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
