The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its compassionate population of 10.784 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 82%, 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.

Children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. 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 4,344th in The East Pacific and 114,540th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
