OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The CES Monkey's Republic of Grosse-merde is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Moudole SuprÍme with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 8.121 billion, 7.936 billion of whom are zombies, Grosse-merdeans 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, 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.

Guns are banned, Grosse-merde has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Grosse-merde to be bombproof. 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 114,085th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -23 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Grosse-merde is currently considering its options.
