OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 12.212 billion Elkenianians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and International Aid receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 83%, 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.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, graffiti graces every city's streets, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 4,218th in The East Pacific and 119,266th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -89 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
