The Eastern Commonwealth of Monaque is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pálffy Dominik with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.159 billion Monaqueans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gdansk. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Monaquean economy, worth 103 trillion Monas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 89,501 Monas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and the government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Monaque's national animal is the Monaquean Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Monaque is ranked 249,598th in the world and 11,508th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.27 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
