LeaderMarrick Hertzog


The Fourth Republic of Montarc is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Marrick Hertzog with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.572 billion Montarcians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komsa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Montarcian economy, worth 999 trillion Herns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 179,420 Herns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 794,917 per year while the poor average 25,291, a ratio of 31.4 to 1.

Financial investors are noting a boom in artillery, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, Montarc's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, and patriotic parents remind their children to drink plenty of water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Montarc's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Montarc is ranked 27,520th in the world and 1,283rd in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.7 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
