Montagne Riche

Population8.908 billion

LeaderChairman Vilmorin


The Socialist State of Montagne Riche is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chairman Vilmorin with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 8.908 billion Montagnais enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, 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 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Montagnais economy, worth a remarkable 1,263 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 141,787 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Zombie-like crowds of hard drug users stumble through the streets, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and children's daycare starts at the crack of dawn. 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.

Montagne Riche is ranked 251,698th in the world and 1,189th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.25 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
