The Cardinal Guardian Fang of Ethel mermania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.279 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 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Beef-Based Agriculture.
Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. 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.
