The Zombie Red Republic of -Echolilia- is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 10.224 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echolilia City. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.
The thriving -Echolilia-ian economy, worth 949 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 92,863 tacoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Workers have seized control of the economy, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, tourists are forbidden to enter Native -Echolilia-ian lands, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. 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.
