Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical population of 15.538 billion Elkenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The minute, socially-minded government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. The average income tax rate is 1.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Elkenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,680 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 108,126 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, mandatory daycare is provided by the government, and auditors are gutting every governmental department. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elkenian is ranked 40,694th in the world and 590th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1.46 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
