The Bad Idea in Retrospect of Ennui On The Mountain is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Manager with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.865 billion 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, liberal 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.

The populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, graffiti graces every city's streets, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 80th in The Ascendancy and 115,896th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
