The Ranging Ungulate Herd of Elk is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lincoln Elkhart with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.673 billion Elk 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elks Lodge. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elk economy, worth 654 trillion kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,099 kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation was recently voted as the most stylish in Democratia, girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elk's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Grazing.

Elk is ranked 205,183rd in the world and 3rd in Democratia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.3 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
