The Flammable Gas of Ethane is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Henry IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 12.32 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 Law & Order, 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 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ethanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,908 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 154,891 C2H6s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, the only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", and Ethane isn't what it used to be. 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 228,739th in the world and 85th in Esportiva for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
