The Borderlands of Monika- is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 599 million Monikans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Idlewood. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Monikan economy, worth 70.4 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 117,546 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monika-'s national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Monika- is ranked 44,621st in the world and 1,775th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
