The Empire of Etanur is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.549 billion Etanurians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Etanurian economy, worth 166 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 107,441 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", Etanur City has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The North Pacific, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Etanur is ranked 17,598th in the world and 879th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 62.57 Quips Per Hour.
