The Imperial Kingdom of Montagne Riche is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by His Imperial Majesty Theodore I with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 6.504 billion Montagnais are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Genève. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Montagnais economy, worth 930 trillion Montagne Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 143,116 Montagne Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, religious education is a new government priority, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Montagne Riche's national animal is the Rooster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Montagne Riche is ranked 240,974th in the world and 1,160th in Europe for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -19.7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
