The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.365 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 82%, 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 people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. 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.

Elkenian is ranked 3,148th in The East Pacific and 98,518th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -12 on the Hayek Index.
