The Republic of ElBaron is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hugo Alonso with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, avant-garde cinema, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, devout population of 13.422 billion ElBaronians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cittągazze. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient ElBaronian economy, worth a remarkable 1,860 trillion Cublas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,607 Cublas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", and politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ElBaron's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

ElBaron is ranked 5,884th in the world and 9th in Thaecia for Most Developed, scoring 93.17 on the Human Development Index.
