The Theocracy of Ethmerica is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Ethan with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 2.403 billion Ethmericans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eth City. The average income tax rate is 46.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ethmerican economy, worth 285 trillion Eth Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 118,867 Eth Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Ethmerican pirates, and industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethmerica's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ethmerica is ranked 2,463rd in the world and 132nd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 21,112.91 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
