LeaderThe Chosen


The People's Republic of Eteles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Chosen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.923 billion Etelesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Etelesian economy, worth 251 trillion deniers 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 130,885 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Etelesian Liberator", new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and The Chosen's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eteles's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eteles is ranked 198,699th in the world and 9,260th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 41.06 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
