The Unitary Technocracy of Etoile Arcture is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Soledad Martin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 29.073 billion Etolians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Corinth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Etolian economy, worth a remarkable 8,568 trillion Simoleons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 294,712 Simoleons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,002,521 per year while the poor average 63,862, a ratio of 15.7 to 1.
Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the government is lending a hand to private industry, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime is totally unknown. Etoile Arcture's national animal is the Hirsute Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
