The Democratic Republic of Echnada is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, enforced nudity, and devotion to social welfare. The humorless population of 16.636 billion Echnadans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Industry, Social Policy, and Education. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Echnadan economy, worth 550 trillion Qats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 33,119 Qats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All industry is owned and run by the government, euthanasia is legal, all tariffs have been abolished, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Echnada's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Echnada is ranked 46,252nd in the world and 25th in Middle Earth for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.82 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
