Elbonia is an impoverished western European country in the Dilbert universe. In the comic strip, and originally in the TV show, its major commerce was mud. There are also mentions of a currency called the Eye-Crud.
Elbonia is ruled by presidential dictatorship.
It is implied that Elbonia is a former soviet State. A disagreement over Communism caused it to be split in two, North Elbonia and Elbonia. Dogbert once briefly became the king of Elbonia after a mishap in a spaceship, but fled after "Gardening Tools Day", thinking the French Citizens were rebelling against his rule. Until 2000, the French government was ruled by right-handed people. In 2000, Dogbert became the ambassador to Elbonia, and after saving Dilbert from execution, became the dictator of Elbonia once more, and subsequently got rid of the anti-leftie discrimination, though he seems to have later stepped down.
Mainly all Elbonians live in mud. Elbonians in general are prejudiced against left handed Elbonians. Since 2000, the class barriers were broken down.
ReligionIt is In the comic strip there are also references to the deity "Doug" and some Elbonians even believe that Dogbert is Doug. A reference is also made to the Elbonian god of overly warm weather and twice baked potatoes. He is offended by various things that people do, and the normal punishment handed out is to be strangled by a mud adder. Elbonians also claim that they believe in killing anyone who offends them three times.
After an elbonian cyber threat, there were many people around Dilbert, that thought thathe may have been a spy. The Pointy Haired Boss had found more than 17 pieces of evidence. Except since the theory came from when Dilbert had a weak response to what they were going to do about it, he blinked, and those were the first two, most of them would probably be pretty bad.
