“Per aspera ad astra”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.327 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, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,061 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 127,475 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, 'I'm Coming Out' has shot to the top of the nation's music charts, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.
