The Disputed Territories of Etazhi is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 361 million vodka-drinkers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Etazhian economy, worth 16.5 trillion рубльs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 45,639 рубльs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former televangelists are often seen begging skateboarders for donations, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etazhi's national animal is the медведь, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Etazhi is ranked 181,711th in the world and 11th in Russia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -4.73 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
