“Tacos aren't tacos, except when they are tacos”

The Zombie Red Republic of -Echolilia- is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.371 billion 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, 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 92%, 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.
It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, the army's shirt ninjas are the most feared assassins in the region, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales. 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.
