The Zombie Red Republic of -Echolilia- is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 10.592 billion Echolilians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echolilia City. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.
The thriving -Echolilia-ian economy, worth 983 trillion tacoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 92,844 tacoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, nude art is becoming wildly popular, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Echolilia-'s national animal is the taco, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.
