The SSR of Moanapo is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by tutankhamun with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.65 billion Moanapoans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astrakhan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Moanapoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,081 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 296,295 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Moanapo's national animal is the Liger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Militant Catholic.

Moanapo is ranked 159,305th in the world and 8,134th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -35 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
