The Cardinal Guardian Cat of Ethel mermania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.405 billion Ethel mermanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Education and Public Transport are secondary priorities. 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 17%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Beef-Based Agriculture.
A government program is underway to revitalize Ethel mermania's beaches, euthanasia is illegal, Ethel mermania Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging. 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.
