The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.27 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 receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,196 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 129,061 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Etanur's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and 75% of the words in government-funded "Super Fun Maths Games" are probably inaccurate. 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 3,665th in the world and 183rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 15,999.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
