The Republic of Ethnon27 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ritual sacrifices, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.22 billion Ethnonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.1%.

The powerhouse Ethnon27ian economy, worth 261 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,110 guilders, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, and commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethnon27's national animal is the Bee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ethnon27 is ranked 137,495th in the world and 4,393rd in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 42.33 Insults Per Minute.
