Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Montegan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Grand Duck Donald Mallard with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 7.515 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 morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Monteganian economy, worth 214 trillion zecchinoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 28,583 zecchinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside. 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 64,109th in the world and 3,238th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 79.69 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
