The Sultanate of Monkistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Nelson Monkdela with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, unlimited-speed roads, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.487 billion Monkistanis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monkow. The average income tax rate is 3.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Monkistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,764 trillion Denarii a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 272,000 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", people in Monkistan can die peacefully knowing that all their debts are paid, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Monkistan's national animal is the Monkee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monkism.

Monkistan is ranked 7,594th in the world and 112th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,267.91 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
