The Tiandi Puppet holy blue of Munkcestrian Republic is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Lord President George Fenwick with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 998 million Munkcestrians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Munkchester. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Munkcestrian economy, worth 111 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,058 guilders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 629,973 per year while the poor average 9,849, a ratio of 64.0 to 1.

Unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison, and chickens roam the streets freely. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Munkcestrian Republic's national animal is the vampire.

Munkcestrian Republic is ranked 49,846th in the world and 22nd in Tiandi for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,000.72 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
