The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.426 billion Elkenianians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Elkenianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,252 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 100,826 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Guns are banned, the government is avowedly atheist, notable individuals are granted land and titles, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
Elkenian is ranked 34th in The East Pacific and 1,755th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,463.8 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
