Hey guys,
I thought it was time to ask- is Elbonia real? I've heard all this talk about it but I don't know what it is. Any help is appreciated.

Try a search for Xyrdavia.

Elbonia is located just North of Xyrdavia. On the north border, you shall (...) find the High Elbonia, previously known as the Democratic Republic of North Elbonia. Even Norther is Ginebria.

Come on use your common sense, its in the middle of bullsheetland just south of Nounsense. Roughly in the middle of your world map, and just to the north east.

This thread highlights the failings of the US education system when it comes to world geography.

To think there are some supposedly educated people who can't even locate Elbonia on a map!

How is the tourism industry in Elbonia? Any better than Vegas?

The problem is that they changed their name from Lower Slobbovia, and it made it hard on us.

Do the Schmoos still live there?

Quite good, actually. A lot of people are coming over to Elbonia to have those mountain sightseeing flights aboard Kilofoxes... Ah, how much I miss those...

"The Republic of Elbonia is a fictional country from the comic strips Dilbert and Plop. It is an extremely poor, fourth-world Eastern-European country that has recently abandoned Communism. Most of the nation is covered with waist-deep mud, which the residents use to build houses. Much of the economy is mud-based.

Most of the Elbonians have beards, even the females, and wear tall grey hats and black mittens. Their technology is very outdated, and includes tin can telephones, and giant slingshots (instead of airplanes). Elbonians are commonly portrayed as idiotic and backward. For many years the country has been mired in a civil war between the left and right-handed Elbonians, although the war was mostly bloodless, as the Elbonians didn't realize they were allowed to use weapons.

Elbonia's government is a dictatorship, run by a right-handed Fidel Castro-esque military strongman who strives to crush the lefties. Dogbert briefly deposed the President and made himself dictator, turning Elbonia into a tourist hotspot by making prostitution and gambling not only legal, but mandatory.

The national bird of Elbonia is the frisbee. In order to attract tourists Elbonia openly lies in its promotional videos, and claims to host five of the seven wonders of the world."

I thought it was a real country! Laugh out loud

If I remember my world geography correctly isn't Elbonia's primary industry mud farming and IT support?

Rhaa. Elbonia *is* a real country. The Fascist pig known as Scott Addams is merely trying to make you thing the opposite.

I have read in National Geogrpahic that the remnants of the 'unfortunate' Kilofox flights, that have become 'one with the mountain', are used as bases for radio towers. Is there any thruth to this?

Never mind, I found Elbonia but this map is old so it is called Slobbovia.

For the purposes of tourism, Molvania is a much better value than nearby Elbonia.

Lol Mark.

Actually, there was, months before, a very similar thread, named 'What, where is Elbonia' or something like that...

Still cannot locate it, rhaa !

Oh well, at least, I can locate Elbonia on a map !
