“Tacos aren't tacos, except when they are tacos”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: 10000 Islands
The Zombie Red Republic of -Echolilia- is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.77 billion Echolilians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echolilia City. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The nation leads 10000 Islands in per capita stalking, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. -Echolilia-'s national animal is the taco, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the taco.
