The Impending baldness of Ethel mermania is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.932 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport. 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 19%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. 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 4,284th in the West Pacific and 108,697th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -275.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
