The Cardinal Guardian Fang 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 9.109 billion, 680 million of whom are zombies, Ethel mermanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Education and Public Transport are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great White Way. The average income tax rate is 14%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. 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 3,711th in the West Pacific and 101,795th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Ethel mermania is currently researching a cure.
