[Computation type:] Simple function application.

[Binding strategy:] The bound function is applied to the input value.
@'Identity' x >>= f == 'Identity' (f x)@

[Useful for:] Monads can be derived from monad transformers applied to the
'Identity' monad.

[Zero and plus:] None.

[Example type:] @'Identity' a@

The @Identity@ monad is a monad that does not embody any computational strategy.
It simply applies the bound function to its input without any modification.
Computationally, there is no reason to use the @Identity@ monad
instead of the much simpler act of simply applying functions to their arguments.
The purpose of the @Identity@ monad is its fundamental role in the theory
of monad transformers.
Any monad transformer applied to the @Identity@ monad yields a non-transformer
version of that monad.
