New Echelon

Population7.482 billion



The Great Nation of New Echelon is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 7.482 billion Echelonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dundalk. The average income tax rate is 80.2%.

The frighteningly efficient New Echelonian economy, worth 763 trillion Sigints a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,032 Sigints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, and sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Echelon's national animal is the Bobcat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Echelon is ranked 17,840th in the world and 877th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 91 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
