Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, national health service, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 17.865 billion Elkenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 4.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elkenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,518 trillion elks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,988 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trained plumber-burglars will clean out your blocked pipes and your jewellery boxes, there is a dearth of space for new houses, disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Elkenians's kindness, and there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elkenian is ranked 37,692nd in the world and 1,461st in The East Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 0.61 Stalins.
