The United Republics of Multonia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Johann Dushku with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 10.596 billion Multonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oured. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Multonian economy, worth 893 trillion Multonian Zollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,289 Multonian Zollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts, anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, and the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Multonia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Multonia is ranked 152,921st in the world and 144th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 409.77 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
