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 anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed population of 11.87 billion 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 the Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 82%, 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.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the military is blowing up any threat to employment within the nation, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed. 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 60,738th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 59 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
