The Federation of Montbellia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Felix Bengal with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 2.757 billion Montbellians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pentapolis. The average income tax rate is 9.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Montbellian economy, worth 506 trillion plats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 183,836 plats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Escalators are avoided at all costs, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Montbellia's national animal is the albatross, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Montbellia is ranked 25,108th in the world and 9th in Selene for Highest Economic Output, with 506 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
