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 hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 12.221 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 86%, 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.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, Grosse-merde has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy. 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 119,310th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -14 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
