The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 22.247 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, socially-minded government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 7.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elkenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,324 trillion elks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,449 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, the only crimes that get investigated are doughnut heists, being wrong on the internet has been classified as digital terrorism, and the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elkenian is ranked 47,856th in the world and 595th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1.68 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
