The Impending baldness of Ethel mermania is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.57 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.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and euthanasia is illegal. 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 1,006th in the West Pacific and 32,614th in the world for Most Average, scoring 1,081 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
