Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, avant-garde cinema, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical population of 15.732 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 government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Elkenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,986 trillion elks a year, is quite 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 126,274 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government ministers claim to ride dragons to work, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elkenian is ranked 141,575th in the world and 7,770th in The East Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 9.54 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
