The Grand Duchy of Montegan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duck Donald Mallard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.939 billion Monteganians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Monteganian economy, worth 310 trillion zecchinoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 31,270 zecchinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and Montegan has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories. 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.

Montegan is ranked 26,872nd in the world and 1,487th in The North Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 17.69 Average Smiles Per Day.
