“Damm the diabetes, I want chocolatety goodness”Fearless Leader
|Category: Moralistic Democracy|
Regional Influence: Vassal
Location: the West Pacific
The Cardinal Guardian Cat of Ethel mermania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.67 billion Ethel mermanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great White Way. The average income tax rate is 29.1%.
The very strong Ethel mermanian economy, worth 871 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. Average income is 90,134 yids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, god-fearing citizens can be seen in prayer circles around the Big Max impact crater, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales. 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, and its national religion is the cult of fearless leaderism.
