The Republic of Monteverde is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.552 billion Monteverdeans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The thriving Monteverdean economy, worth 338 trillion pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 60,927 pesos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 268,162 per year while the poor average 8,689, a ratio of 30.9 to 1.

Imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, and the studies of art and philosophy are banned. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Monteverde's national animal is the parrot.

Monteverde is ranked 147,402nd in the world and 36th in South America for Most Beautiful Environments, with 503.25 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
