The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.833 billion Etanurians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth 845 trillion fuzzbutts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 123,666 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and computers have been put in control of the economy to keep computers from controlling the economy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etanur's national animal is the corgi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Etanur is ranked 150,118th in the world and 7,350th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -79.33 on the Rand Index.
