LeaderThe Chosen


The People's Republic of Eteles is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by The Chosen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 896 million Etelesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Etelesian economy, worth 96.1 trillion deniers 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,206 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, swings are now more popular than see-saws in children's playgrounds, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eteles's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eteles is ranked 23,764th in the world and 1,153rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 77.45 on the Human Development Index.
