The Colony of Ethnon Group is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.603 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 63.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ethnon Groupian economy, worth 123 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 76,957 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, Ethnonians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, both vegetables and viruses are often smuggled across the border, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethnon Group's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ethnon Group is ranked 143,020th in the world and 5,640th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -69.44 on the Rand Index.
