The People's Republic of Echolilia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Repetitious Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.782 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 1,122 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 51,530 reiteratas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise. 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 142,005th in the world and 1,219th in 10000 Islands for Most Average, scoring 26.66 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
