The Maleficent Dictatorship of Monlyth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Blairuss Farring Vinyl with an iron fist, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.451 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goliath. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all. 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, and its currency is the Terras Dollar.

Monlyth is ranked 200th in The Coalition of Governments and 113,523rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -214 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
