The Corgious Empire of Etanur is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 16.276 billion Etanurians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corgi-on-the-Wold. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 3,126 trillion fuzzbutts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 192,091 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, talking during class is a gateway to lifelong drug addiction, and stranded mountaineers can watch livestreamed footage of their rescues. 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, and its national religion is Scientific Splootism.

Etanur is ranked 2,894th in the world and 168th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 443 meters of sunlight.
