The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.525 billion Etanurians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,236 trillion fuzzbutts a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,856 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etanur's national animal is the corgi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Etanur is ranked 3,902nd in the world and 226th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,527.82 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
