Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Impending baldness of Ethel mermania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.491 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, although Education, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great White Way. The average income tax rate is 13.6%.

The powerhouse Ethel mermanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,226 trillion yids a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,740 yids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, most academic research has ground to a halt, movie references are legally admissible in court, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. 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 9th in Snazzy and 110,956th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -4 Whatever.
