Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate population of 17.335 billion Elkenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, socially-minded government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 3.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elkenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,428 trillion elks a year, is quite 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 140,064 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Elkenian, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Elkenians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and freed serfs and former nobles exchange awkward glances in the produce aisle. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elkenian is ranked 178,208th in the world and 7,865th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.26 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
