The Principality of The Divine Elephant is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, fear of technology, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 653 million Elephas Maximi 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, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 60.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Elephone economy, worth 43.1 trillion Guilders a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,071 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Divine Elephant's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
