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, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 13.549 billion Elkenians 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 large government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Elkenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,644 trillion elks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,408 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Nudity is frowned upon, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service.
