The president of the Republican Council, wanting to "do something big," proposes building a 1,500-meter-high mountain as a monument to the nation's greatness. Employing political double-talk at its worst, the president convinces the Council to proceed with this insane, grandiose plan by heralding its hoped-for benefits: the project will reduce unemployment, attract hordes of tourists, solve the problem of garbage (the filler for this artificial mountain), and increase revenue by licensing the idea to other countries.
Told in three distinct parts and from three different points of view, Mountain R records the disasters that result from political corruption and manipulative leaders.
