The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.865 billion Elkenianians 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Elkenian City Times is sold out, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the elk.

Elkenian is ranked 3,551st in The East Pacific and 95,990th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -11 on the Hayek Index.
