The     of Munkcestrian RepubIic is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lord President George Fenwick with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.16 billion Munkcestrians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Munkchester. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The powerhouse Munkcestrian economy, worth 342 trillion Munkcestrian pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 66,305 Munkcestrian pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 216,645 per year while the poor average 15,256, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Homosexuality is a crime punishable by death, many of the poor live from cradle to grave without ever seeing sunlight, tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, and days begin with afternoon tea. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Munkcestrian RepubIic's national animal is the wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Munkcestrian RepubIic is ranked 92,996th in the world and 2,760th in Osiris for Most Politically Free, scoring 68.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
