The Zombie Red Republic of -Echolilia- is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.259 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, 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 very strong -Echolilia-ian economy, worth 733 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 88,810 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.
