The People's Republic of Echolilia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Repetitious Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, rampant corporate plagiarism, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.823 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, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echolilia City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Echolilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,240 trillion reiteratas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 52,060 reiteratas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Repetitious Leader's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown. Echolilia's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Whatever Religion You Like.

Echolilia is ranked 12,319th in the world and 215th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,774.52 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
