The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 16.502 billion Elkenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The tiny, socially-minded government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Spirituality and International Aid not funded at all. The average income tax rate is 2.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Elkenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,188 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 132,644 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
