Average income is 88,951 tacoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, calling out of the blue has become taboo, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million tacoes of property damage. 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.
