The Matriarchy of Ethan the terrible is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.305 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, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Ethan the terriblean economy, worth 358 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 155,723 Ethanbills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, and the government is overcome with ennui. 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.
