The Republic of Etheinia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Abd al-Aziz Nassim with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.346 billion Etheinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Sana'a. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Etheinian economy, worth 267 trillion ENCUS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 114,216 ENCUS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, vaccinations are mandatory, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and adult unemployment is rising as available jobs are filled by young children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etheinia's national animal is the Osprey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Islam.

Etheinia is ranked 109,134th in the world and 33rd in The Hope Federation for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 658.6 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
