Munkcestrian RepubIic

Population3.389 billion



The Aa of Munkcestrian RepubIic is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.389 billion Munkcestrians enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Munkchester. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The powerhouse Munkcestrian economy, worth 232 trillion stecks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Average income is 68,531 stecks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 270,146 per year while the poor average 11,787, a ratio of 22.9 to 1.

Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, and embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Munkcestrian RepubIic's national animal is the wyrm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Munkcestrian RepubIic is ranked 43,745th in the world and 705th in Osiris for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 108.61 on the Hayek Index.
