The Democratic States of Greater Etherial is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 454 million Greater Etherialians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aetherialis. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Greater Etherialian economy, worth 35.5 trillion Ethers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,239 Ethers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, and voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Etherial's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater Etherial is ranked 39,931st in the world and 432nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,658.35 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
