The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.577 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 receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,250 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 130,617 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, and the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans. 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 239,609th in the world and 9,106th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -483.17 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
