The Cardinal Guardian Fang of Ethel mermania is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.243 billion Ethel mermanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 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 5%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, the government has taken a 'sort it out yourselves' approach to fighting malaria, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. 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 4,087th in the West Pacific and 114,676th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -165 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
