The Matriarchy of Ethan the terrible is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its closed borders, rum-swilling pirates, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.323 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, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Ethan the terriblean economy, worth 363 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 Woodchip Exports. 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 156,609 Ethanbills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, the government is overcome with ennui, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. 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.
