The Armed Republic of Etaima is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The cynical, devout population of 382 million Etaimen 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Timani. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Etaiman economy, worth 24.9 trillion Ginas a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,064 Ginas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, religious education is a new government priority, drive-by spoilers are an increasingly common crime, and attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etaima's national animal is the Enkali, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Etaima is ranked 218,624th in the world and 9,880th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.92 percentage of bribes refused.
