The Golden Throne Room of Ethnon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marcus Antonius with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 10.191 billion Ethnonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moral High Ground. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ethnonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,227 trillion Tetradrachms a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 218,539 Tetradrachms, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Moral High Ground is a police state during international summits, there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and Marcus Antonius has decreed that one must think of cheese upon reading the word mouse (Ethnon has found 3 easter eggs). 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, and its national religion is a Pantheon of Gods.

Ethnon is ranked 1,810th in the world and 86th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 98.97 Effective Tax Rate.
