The Empire of Etanur is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.79 billion Etanurians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth 338 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 121,204 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, electricians spend more time in school than doctors, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, and metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach. 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 11,351st in the world and 604th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 358.42 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
