The Free Land of Ethonicia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 298 million Ethonicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suntolia. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ethonician economy, worth 16.3 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Average income is 54,839 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, solid-gold toilets are Ethonician prisons' least expensive furnishings, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethonicia's national animal is the pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ethonicia is ranked 258,164th in the world and 219th in Valley of Peace for Fattest Citizens, with 6.59 Obesity Rate.
