The Kingdom of Elphonsa is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 698 million Elphonsans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivorn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.4%.

The powerhouse Elphonsan economy, worth 67.7 trillion Elphonsan Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,956 Elphonsan Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elphonsa's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elphonsa is ranked 47,335th in the world and 29th in Kavonia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,870.78 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
