The Bad Idea in Retrospect of Ennui On The Mountain is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Manager with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.92 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, with Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. 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 446 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 and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 50,017 mehs, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, prime picnicking sites are being paved over in the name of progress, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. 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 142,309th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -113 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
