The Empire of Etanur is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.201 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 large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth 388 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,245 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. 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 51,247th in the world and 2,885th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,022 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
