The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.634 billion Elkenianians 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 aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Elkenianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,307 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 103,496 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and billions are being spent on a new island airport. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
