The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.307 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, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,058 trillion fuzzbutts a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,414 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Etanur isn't what it used to be, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', garden flower shows rarely smell of roses, and a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously". 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 12,048th in the world and 654th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 88.43 Atheism Rate.
