The Federal Republic of Ettinmere is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dear Mr President with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.985 billion Ettinmereans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkadia. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ettinmerean economy, worth 205 trillion Florins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,580 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, Information Technology facilities are being turned into wolf habitats, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of wolves and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ettinmere's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lycanthropy.

Ettinmere is ranked 75,158th in the world and 2,952nd in the Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,750.73 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
