The Grand Duchy of Montegan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Duck Donald Mallard with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 8.087 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 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Monteganian economy, worth 232 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 28,750 zecchinoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, and truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills. 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 89,119th in the world and 5,072nd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,129.98 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
