The Allied States of Monkaslavia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 636 million Monkaslavians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solarus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Monkaslavian economy, worth 84.4 trillion Monkas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 132,782 Monkas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 436,161 per year while the poor average 30,314, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, and the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monkaslavia's national animal is the Rhino, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Monkaslavia is ranked 122,759th in the world and 132nd in Federation of Conservative Nations for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 19.48 on the Hayek Index.
