The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 12.056 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 83%, 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 government program is underway to revitalize Elkenian's beaches, the government is avowedly atheist, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life, and reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors. 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 2,819th in The East Pacific and 84,271st in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 11 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
