The Free Land of Elkenian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 22.782 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 are ignored. The average income tax rate is 8.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elkenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,390 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 148,841 elks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime is totally unknown. Elkenian's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elkenian is ranked 1,513th in the world and 149th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 103 Valid Endorsements.
