The Federation of Ethnon is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Marcus Antonius with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.729 billion Ethnonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Moral High Ground. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ethnonian economy, worth 496 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,870 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethnon's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ethnon is ranked 5,152nd in the world and 197th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 8,536.91 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
