The Zombie Red Republic of -Echolilia- is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.385 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echolilia City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.
The thriving -Echolilia-ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,185 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. Average income is 95,749 tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, nude art is becoming wildly popular, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. 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.
