The RMB Spammers Will Be Ejected of Kissinger-Monroe is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Secretary of State Cthulhu with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.149 billion Kissinger-Monroeans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seward's Folly. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kissinger-Monroean economy, worth a remarkable 1,577 trillion Détentes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 172,400 Détentes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

It's not mass murder when the government does it, camera crews have accompanied conscripted dancers to film 'Marching On Ice', burnt-out forty-foot-tall wicker men dot the countryside, and there are fifty shades of yellow in outdoor swimming pools. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kissinger-Monroe's national animal is the Hammerhead Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Banjecting.

Kissinger-Monroe is ranked 191,473rd in the world and 68th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.47 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
