Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The CES Monkey's Republic of Grosse-merde is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Moudole SuprÍme with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 17.021 billion Grosse-merdeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Grosse-merdean economy, worth 121 trillion merdes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Beef-Based Agriculture industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 7,118 merdes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, and local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Grosse-merde's national animal is the merde, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Grosse-merde is ranked 170,809th in the world and 1st in The Grand Alliance for Most Devout, with 5.14 Prayers Per Hour.
