How do you increase your chances of being elected?

The public, as well as the ambassadors and the reigning head of state choose from among all the candidates who they think can best represent Elfia. They do not only look at the written statement, but also at the presentation. So the better you present yourself in photo and/or video, the greater your chance of being elected. It is also very important whether the candidate shows pleasure in his/her presentation.

Another important factor to consider is how well and how actively you can and want to promote Elfia through the various social channels after the elections.

Head of state or royal couple?

You can participate in the elections as 1 person or with a partner. However, a maximum of two persons can be regarded as joint head of state.

When is the winner announced?

The eventual winner will be announced live in February 2023 by the Marshall of the Diplomatic Corps. The winner will be invited by the organization to attend Elfia in April of that year. During a special ceremony on Sunday, the winner will be presented to the people of Elfia, followed by a ceremony in the temple of Elfia. The announcement of the winner has been brought forward – before the event takes place – so that we have enough time to mint the new Elfo coin in honor of the new ‘head of state’ of Elfia.

Won and then what?

  • After the official installation, a short parade will be held to congratulate the new head of state.
  • During Elfia in September of the same year and during Elfia the following year in April, the winner will officially address Elfia. Make sure you always have a very short, but also fun text at hand.
