The Bad Idea in Retrospect of Ennui On The Mountain is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Manager with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 13.969 billion Ennui On The Mountainians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal individuals is primarily concerned with Industry, with Environment, Administration, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yawn City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ennui On The Mountainian economy, worth 831 trillion mehs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 59,529 mehs, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Animal control is going door-to-door releasing all pets back into the wild, rioting and unrest sweep the nation, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ennui On The Mountain's national animal is the sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ennui On The Mountain is ranked 58,034th in the world and 3rd in Loamhedge for Most Extreme, scoring 20.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
