Re: The post-atomic horror government in "Encounter at Farpoint"

One of the characters would probably have noticed if the re-creation wasn't accurate.

That being said, it's interesting to note that there wasn't supposed to even be an ECON - all references to it (in ST:FC) were supposed to just be China, but they changed it at the last minute. In any case, it seems obvious that the ECON was organized *around* China, or at least had a heavy Chinese influence.
