The Grand Duchy of Montegan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duck Donald Mallard with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.398 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, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Monteganian economy, worth 289 trillion zecchinoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 30,788 zecchinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. 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 149,670th in the world and 8,802nd in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 34,719.58 Standard Monetary Units.
