The Impending baldness of Ethel mermania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.149 billion Ethel mermanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great White Way. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Ethel mermanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,895 trillion yids a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 117,381 yids, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sentenced to death, membership in the cult of fearless leaderism is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, and the government violently suppresses separatist movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Ethel mermania's national animal is the ethel merman, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the cult of fearless leaderism.

Ethel mermania is ranked 163,351st in the world and 11th in Snazzy for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -18.71 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
