The Bad Idea in Retrospect of Ennui On The Mountain is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Manager with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.39 billion Ennuis On The Mountainian live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, the Environment, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yawn City. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points, and the government is outsourcing itself. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ennui On The Mountain's national animal is the sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the meh.

Ennui On The Mountain is ranked 3rd in Loamhedge and 5,082nd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 25 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
