The Republic of Etainerre is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 401 million Etainerreans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Etainerrean economy, worth 11.5 trillion Sens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 28,613 Sens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, no one engages in 'locker room talk' any more, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etainerre's national animal is the Chartreux, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Etainerre is ranked 115,692nd in the world and 1,128th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 16.52 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
