Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Maleficent Dictatorship of Monlyth is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Blairuss Farring Vinyl with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.898 billion Varrenss 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goliath. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The all-consuming Monlythian economy, worth 592 trillion Terras Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 120,922 Terras Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monlyth's national animal is the Emperor Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Monlyth is ranked 135th in The Coalition of Governments and 59,493rd in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
