The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.739 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.
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 Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 80%, 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.
The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, students cut up leftover elks during Arts and Crafts, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. 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.
