The United States of Springmont is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Moises Tullar with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, national health service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-working population of 3.983 billion Montians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Winbridge. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Montian economy, worth 490 trillion Springmont Tesoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 123,086 Springmont Tesoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 347,937 per year while the poor average 34,837, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

The new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, cholera is seen as the holiest of diseases, and hospitals in Springmont are too busy serving the needs of Melayu Archipelago to see Montians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Springmont's national animal is the Golden hamster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Haqq.

Springmont is ranked 171,855th in the world and 25th in Melayu Archipelago for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -3.67 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
