OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The CES Monkey's Republic of Grosse-merde is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Moudole SuprÍme with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 11.355 billion Grosse-merdeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 81%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and a government program is underway to revitalize Grosse-merde's beaches. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grosse-merde's national animal is the merde, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the merde.

Grosse-merde is ranked 1st in The Grand Alliance and 41,591st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.553 Stalins.
