The Commonwealth of Monianoli is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its public floggings, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.174 billion Monianolians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Monianolian economy, worth a remarkable 2,651 trillion Kols a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 429,439 Kols, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,992,656 per year while the poor average 21,365, a ratio of 140 to 1.

Photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, Monianoli is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Monianoli's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Monianoli is ranked 107,948th in the world and 3,750th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 50.29 on the Human Development Index.
