The Federal Republic of Monteconstance is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Xavien with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 3.804 billion Monteconstanceans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monteconstance City. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Monteconstancean economy, worth 701 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,432 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, faking deafness is the only way to guarantee a holiday in the nation, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monteconstance's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Matrixian.

Monteconstance is ranked 71,387th in the world and 2,150th in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,639.09 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
