The Commonwealth of Monianoli is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.09 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 government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Monianolian economy, worth a remarkable 7,239 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 553,047 Kols, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,477,340 per year while the poor average 37,053, a ratio of 93.8 to 1.

The government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Monianolian as 'your finger, you fool', the statue in the Gorbachev Plaza has a solar panel for a hat, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Monianoli's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Monianoli is ranked 263rd in the world and 7th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 19,818.62 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
