The Maleficent Dictatorship of Monlyth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Blairuss Farring Vinyl with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.283 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.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, school uniforms are compulsory, and vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television. 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 335th in Taijitu and 116,072nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -197 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
