The Disputed Territories of FH Eta is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.675 billion FH Etans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 71.2%.

The frighteningly efficient FH Etan economy, worth 249 trillion Szchequinns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,905 Szchequinns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in FH Eta after the ban on emigration was lifted, private businesses are paving paradises to put up parking lots, TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews, and a large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FH Eta's national animal is the Dugong, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

FH Eta is ranked 22,504th in the world and 29th in Nihon for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 292,993 Standard Monetary Units.
