The Grand Empire of Elyssae is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Anastasia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.4 billion Elyssaeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeris. The average income tax rate is 92.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Elyssaean economy, worth a remarkable 1,031 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,999 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, a soldier's body is a temple, national magistrates in Aeris are overwhelmed with cases of petty larceny and attempted witchcraft, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elyssae's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elyssae is ranked 5,325th in the world and 204th in Osiris for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 9,702.82 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
