Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Impending baldness of Ethel mermania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.175 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.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great White Way. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.9%.

The powerhouse Ethel mermanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,243 trillion yids a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 111,314 yids, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, the government is buying children's books by the thousands, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. 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 frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the cult of fearless leaderism.

Ethel mermania is ranked 4th in Snazzy and 3,772nd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 250 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
