The Cardinal Guardian Fang of Ethel mermania is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.752 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 concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Education and Public Transport are secondary priorities. 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 4%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Retail and Beef-Based Agriculture.

The Ethel mermania Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts. 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 182nd in the West Pacific and 10,899th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 39.1 Insults Per Minute (net).
