The Borderlands of EchoesKill is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mirror with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.212 billion Echoens love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of AquaCoral. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient EchoesKillian economy, worth 681 trillion echoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 161,809 echoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, EchoesKillian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Mirror, and it's said that Mirror can turn every pleasure into a chore. Crime is totally unknown. EchoesKill's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Reflectionism.

EchoesKill is ranked 209,173rd in the world and 415th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -6.88 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
