The Impending baldness of Ethel mermania is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.522 billion Ethel mermanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great White Way. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Beef-Based Agriculture.

The government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, it's always rabbit season, teenage fathers are forced to join the army, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ethel mermania's national animal is the ethel merman, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the cult of fearless leaderism, and its currency is the yid.

Ethel mermania is ranked 560th in the West Pacific and 24,540th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 19 on the Enoch Index.
