The Empire of Elkhead is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.156 billion Elkheadians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Elkheadian economy, worth 39.8 trillion Velveteen Hooved Marks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,387 Velveteen Hooved Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, surveillance cameras are banned, and schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money. Crime is well under control. Elkhead's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elkhead is ranked 51,648th in the world and 2,702nd in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 2,950.27 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
