The Slaver Paradise holy blue of Munkcestrian Republic is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Lord President George Fenwick with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 965 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 Defense, Industry, 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 106 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 110,604 guilders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 580,350 per year while the poor average 11,280, a ratio of 51.4 to 1.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, Lord President George Fenwick's office is running a trade deficit of midnight oil, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and the Army mostly consists of colonial subjects. 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, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Munkcestrian Republic is ranked 108,226th in the world and 11th in Tiandi for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
