The Empire of Etanur is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.108 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 large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth 500 trillion fuzzbutts a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,740 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, the government is pouring billions into replacement brains, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. 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 159,418th in the world and 9,371st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
