“Freedom & Self Dicipline”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The East Pacific
The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate population of 11.559 billion Elkenianians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 78%, 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.
Citizens select which government department gets their income tax elks each year, meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and all footpaths have tollbooths. 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.
