Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.07 billion Etanurians 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 prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,047 trillion fuzzbutts a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,806 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, treason is relative, recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size, and most ambassadors from Etanur retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 197,697th in the world and 8,646th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.87 Obesity Rate.
