The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.802 billion Elkenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Elkenianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,353 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 105,734 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
