LeaderMarcus Antonius


The Federation of Ethnon is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Marcus Antonius with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.34 billion Ethnonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moral High Ground. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ethnonian economy, worth 401 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,501 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, many friends and relatives of Marcus Antonius have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethnon's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ethnon is ranked 96,642nd in the world and 5,085th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 190.21 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
