The Bad Idea in Retrospect of Ennui On The Mountain is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Manager with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 10.32 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 individuals prioritizes Industry, although Environment is also considered important, 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 476 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 46,218 mehs, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Military funding has been stripped back, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, the government is spending millions on lawyers' fees trying to get The Manager off a murder charge, and a performance of the hit musical "Mamma Tua" has been delayed after squatters were found sleeping in the orchestra pit. 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 6th in Loamhedge and 138,410th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -4 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
