LeaderPrime Minister Abdul Attar


The Federation of Etrius is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Abdul Attar with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.318 billion Etrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiros. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Etrian economy, worth 984 trillion Equays 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 155,764 Equays, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etrius's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is NeoHellenism.

Etrius is ranked 204,708th in the world and 108th in The Hole To Hide In for Rudest Citizens, with 14.69 Insults Per Minute.
