The Military Regime of Etrupa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord High Minister Decimus Carbo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.338 billion Etrupans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marbo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Etrupan economy, worth a remarkable 1,989 trillion Etropian Euros 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 192,401 Etropian Euros, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

The jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etrupa's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Etup.

Etrupa is ranked 4,109th in the world and 4th in Imperium of the Wolf for Fattest Citizens, with 25.89 Obesity Rate.
