Ethan Allen

The Republic of Ethan Allen is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its digital currency, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, devout population of 993 million Ethan Allenians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 39.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ethan Allenian economy, worth 117 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,555 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, and frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethan Allen's national animal is the Morgan Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ethan Allen is ranked 51,052nd in the world and 9th in Vermont for Most Influential, scoring 352 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
