The Commonwealth of Monianoli is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.22 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 dominated by the Department of Industry, with Defense, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Monianolian economy, worth a remarkable 4,650 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 a breathtaking 504,343 Kols, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,648,562 per year while the poor average 115,979, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

It is illegal to liberate slaves, a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, and citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins. 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 240,922nd in the world and 6,745th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -16.43 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
