Elbonia- Is It Real?

Sat Feb 12, 2005 12:43 am

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.

It's kinda southwest of Kreplachistan, near Zamunda.

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?

Impressive indeed.

I am trying to locate an older thread asking the exact same question, but search is not quite fast enough.

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

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 Their technology is very outdated, and includes tin can telephones, and giant slingshots (instead of airplanes).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.

"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..."

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.

I paid US Airways $1200 for my summer vacation there. If they survive chapter 11, can I get a refund on my non-refundable ticket? I am sooooo pissed right now.  Big grin

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 !

Damn Elbonians, they denied my visitors visa last year, the reason given was "The Great Peoples' Republic of Elbonia does not recognize Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Please apply again with any other passport."

So..what's up with that? What did we do to you guys? Rhaa!  Big grin

Unfortunately those phones are not a rare occurrence in Elbonia. They are home made and ultimately lead to people not being able to communicate rightly. This is why elbonternet has developed so quickly.

So the elbonian power is now exporting itself to Spain. No wonder nobody wants to touch mobile phones over there. I hear you need to dial the 999 on those phones to get taxis and putes (the programmer decided so).
