The Federation of Ethnon is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Marcus Antonius with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate population of 1.971 billion Ethnonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moral High Ground. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ethnonian economy, worth 316 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 160,345 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, and private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethnon's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ethnon is ranked 9,502nd in the world and 332nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 9,390.36 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
