LeaderKing Montebad II


The Kingdom of Merconitonitopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Montebad II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.174 billion Onitonites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bahmedag. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Onitonish economy, worth a remarkable 9,815 trillion virtues a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is a breathtaking 511,927 virtues, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, forecasts predict rains of loose lead and mortar shells for the next six weeks, even immigrants complain that immigrants keep taking their jobs, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Merconitonitopia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Onitonipatu.

Merconitonitopia is ranked 6,918th in the world and 326th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,943.05 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
