The Please commend me of Ethan the Great is a huge, safe nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 901 million Ethans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ethan City. The average income tax rate is 32.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ethanian economy, worth 111 trillion Ethan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 124,035 Ethan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Ethan the Great, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, and trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Ethan the Great's national animal is the Ethan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ethan the Great is ranked 136,301st in the world and 6,456th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.44 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
