The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 22.642 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, with Healthcare and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 8.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elkenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,368 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 148,776 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fat-shaming is now public policy, gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elkenian is ranked 153,527th in the world and 6,268th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -20 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
