The Flammable Gas of Ethane is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Henry IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, vat-grown people, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 14.937 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 Defense, Law & Order, 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%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ethanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,320 trillion C2H6s 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 155,341 C2H6s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Child labor has been outlawed, the nation's declaring that sharing nukes is caring, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, and citizens volunteer for tax audits to avoid the 80-page Practical Assessment Survey Tool On Religions. 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 210,094th in the world and 47th in Esportiva for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.26 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
