Population263 million



The People's Republic of Eteles is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The cynical population of 263 million Etelesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Etelesian economy, worth 15.0 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is 56,981 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and all the playground's a stage for Etelesian schoolchildren. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eteles's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eteles is ranked 67,177th in the world and 3,153rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 55 on the Human Development Index.
