The Incredibly Salty Nation of Etheinia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Someone with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.391 billion Etheinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etheinian economy, worth 273 trillion Gasolines a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 114,216 Gasolines, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, vaccinations are mandatory, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and adult unemployment is rising as available jobs are filled by young children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etheinia's national animal is the Osprey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cynicism.

Etheinia is ranked 100,084th in the world and 2nd in The Hope Federation for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring zero on the Clooney Contribution Index.
