The Unitary Technocracy of Etoile Arcture is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Soledad Martin with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 29.536 billion Etolians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Corinth. The average income tax rate is 1.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Etolian economy, worth a remarkable 8,586 trillion Simoleons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 290,722 Simoleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the government is lending a hand to private industry, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime is totally unknown. Etoile Arcture's national animal is the Hirsute Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
