The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 8.015 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 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,049 trillion fuzzbutts a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,930 fuzzbutts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Etanur City Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, the entire entry for Etanur in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences". 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 46,227th in the world and 2,056th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 74.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
