The Commonwealth of Monianoli is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.228 billion Monianolians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Defense and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Monianolian economy, worth a remarkable 3,988 trillion Kols a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 484,700 Kols, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,537,449 per year while the poor average 4,392, a ratio of 1,033 to 1.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Monianoli's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Monianoli is ranked 133rd in the world and 8th in the Rejected Realms for Rudest Citizens, with 720.92 Insults Per Minute.
