The Cardinal Guardian Fang of Ethel mermania is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.05 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.

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. The average income tax rate is 10%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Retail.

Teenage fathers are forced to join the army, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, and nine out of ten citizens of Ethel mermania answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. 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 29th in the West Pacific and 1,400th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 426 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
