The Holidayhollic Jolly Empire of Elegarth is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by God Emperor Elegarth with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.287 billion Elegarthians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of EleGard. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Elegarthian economy, worth a remarkable 5,906 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 243,209 Gold Coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,127,300 per year while the poor average 31,594, a ratio of 35.7 to 1.

The government has enacted freedom of information, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elegarth's national animal is the Black Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Elegarth is ranked 59,978th in the world and 994th in the West Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 38.61 quips per hour.
