The Grand Duchy of Montegan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Grand Duck Donald Mallard with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 8.481 billion Monteganians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Monteganian economy, worth 259 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 reasonably common. Average income is 30,612 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 the all-pervasive 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.

Montegan is ranked 78,777th in the world and 4,138th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 26,710.22 Standard Monetary Units.
