The Great Nation of New Echelon is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.912 billion Echelonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dundalk. The average income tax rate is 71.9%.
The powerhouse New Echelonian economy, worth 406 trillion Sigints a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,846 Sigints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
