The Third Republic of Montarc is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Józef Benedek with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.101 billion Montarcians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komsa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Montarcian economy, worth 542 trillion Herns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 175,085 Herns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 535,664 per year while the poor average 44,327, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

It is illegal to liberate slaves, politicians are forced to vote with their party leaders, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", and people think "siege mentality" is a positive trait. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Montarc's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Montarc is ranked 153,961st in the world and 8,458th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 45.24 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
