The Matriarchy of Ethan the terrible is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.349 billion Ethan the terribleans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Ethan the terriblean economy, worth 373 trillion Ethanbills 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 159,136 Ethanbills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Ethan the terribleans caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, chest pains are considered part of the dining experience in Ethan the terriblean restaurants, a citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethan the terrible's national animal is the Blobfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
