The Sultanate of Monkistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nelson Monkdela with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.407 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 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Monkistani economy, worth a remarkable 2,033 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 274,545 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, Monkistanis no longer find themselves bumping into their exes at family gatherings, the bum of Nelson Monkdela has been voted the most recognisable in Monkistan, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. 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 90,873rd in the world and 552nd in Europe for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7,837.66 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
