OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.671 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 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.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Elkenian Blood Tithe, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. 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 3,737th in The East Pacific and 107,575th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
