New Echelon

Population10.639 billion



The Great Nation of New Echelon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and anti-smoking policies. The quiet, industrious population of 10.639 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 83.5%.

The frighteningly efficient New Echelonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,080 trillion Sigints a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,589 Sigints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, and paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black. 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 39,987th in the world and 1,303rd in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
