|Leader||Grand Duck Donald Mallard|
The Grand Duchy of Montegan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Grand Duck Donald Mallard with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 9.023 billion Monteganians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Monteganian economy, worth 286 trillion zecchinoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,765 zecchinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Montegan's national animal is the mallard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
