“Per aspera ad astra”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Empire of Etanur is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Emperor with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.109 billion Etanurians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Etanurian economy, worth 754 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 common. Average income is an impressive 123,575 fuzzbutts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, voting is voluntary, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. 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.
