Sekura Monto

Population8.699 billion

CapitalVerda Monto


The Social Democracy of Sekura Monto is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.699 billion Montoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verda Monto. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sekura Montoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,727 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 198,531 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the doctor has cold hands, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. Crime is totally unknown. Sekura Monto's national animal is the moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sekura Monto is ranked 951st in the world and 58th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,983.39 Tourists Per Hour.
