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 hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 11.535 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 80%, 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.

All judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, the ban on cars has been repealed, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. 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 105,721st in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -8 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
