The Sultanate of Monkistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nelson Monkdela with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.117 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 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Monkistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,374 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 268,584 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, Nelson Monkdela's office is running a trade deficit of midnight oil, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, and reddish-brown is the new black. 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 2,752nd in the world and 45th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 268,584.74 Standard Monetary Units.
