Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.739 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 isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,289 trillion fuzzbutts a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,393 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, faithful allies are always valued, prank shows are so hot right now, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. 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 8,555th in the world and 450th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 34.97 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
