The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 7.883 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 isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,016 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 128,975 fuzzbutts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and the government funds large training centres to turn corgis into functioning members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 4,918th in the world and 302nd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.76 on the Human Development Index.
