The Republic of Ethnon29 is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its public floggings, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.869 billion Ethnonians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ethnon29ian economy, worth 146 trillion baht a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,286 baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, cities in Ethnon29 declare independence based on interpretation of the historic meaning of cave paintings, and streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethnon29's national animal is the Bee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ethnon29 is ranked 62,163rd in the world and 3,179th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 76.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
