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 Their technology is very outdated, and includes tin can telephones, and giant slingshots (instead of airplanes).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