The Republic of Ethnon29 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed population of 4.512 billion Ethnonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ethnon29ian economy, worth 408 trillion baht 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 90,443 baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Primary candidates are replaced if they fail to compliment Leader's hair, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and visions of giant pink Bees are a common side effect after Ethnonians eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethnon29's national animal is the Bee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ethnon29 is ranked 57,575th in the world and 2,389th in Osiris for Most Secular, with 24.77 Atheism Rate.
