The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.313 billion Elkenianians 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 Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 85%, 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.
A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the study of medicine is popular throughout Elkenian, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. 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.
