The Flammable Gas of Ethane is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Henry IX with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working population of 10.713 billion Ethanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sarum. The average income tax rate is 92.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ethanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,590 trillion C2H6s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,465 C2H6s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethane's national animal is the Red Kite, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ethane is ranked 198,141st in the world and 77th in Esportiva for Nudest, with 39 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
