The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 5.376 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth 652 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 common. Average income is an impressive 121,347 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, courses on ornithology and apiology are surprisingly popular, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. 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 96,410th in the world and 5,161st in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 16.44 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
