The Rogue Nation of Eochora is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 754 million Eochorans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Eochoran economy, worth 7.44 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,861 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eochora's national animal is the None.

Eochora is ranked 83,042nd in the world and 132nd in Psychotic Dictatorships for Lowest Crime Rates, with 64.23 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
