The Cardinal Guardian Fang of Ethel mermania is a colossal, devout 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 8.852 billion Ethel mermanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on 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 6%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and Ethel mermania's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over the West Pacific. 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 3,874th in the West Pacific and 106,699th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -2 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
