The Bad Idea in Retrospect of Ennui On The Mountain is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Manager with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.231 billion Ennui On The Mountainians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals prioritizes Industry, although Environment is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yawn City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ennui On The Mountainian economy, worth 473 trillion mehs a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 51,338 mehs, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Ennui On The Mountain, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Yawn City for fear of causing a fuss, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and the sloth is reportedly extinct. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ennui On The Mountain's national animal is the sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ennui On The Mountain is ranked 8th in Loamhedge and 77,093rd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 62 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
