The Free Land of Anecho is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Man-Bat with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.12 billion Anechoae enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Batopolis. The average income tax rate is 64.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Anechoan economy, worth 164 trillion Hertz a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,896 Hertz, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Anechoan as 'your finger, you fool', factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, and the government is giving peace a chance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Anecho's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Anecho is ranked 141,097th in the world and 5,523rd in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.52 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
