The Kpahud fūrv manāka of Ethensia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nelson Chamelegar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.717 billion Ethensians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carlton Capitol. The average income tax rate is 55.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ethensian economy, worth 333 trillion Ethensian Commonwealth Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 122,804 Ethensian Commonwealth Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, and it's a miracle that there aren't more plane crashes. Crime is totally unknown. Ethensia's national animal is the Feathered Chamelegar Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ethensia is ranked 241,080th in the world and 20th in Coyphus for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -6.2 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
