The Rogue Nation of Momstononistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Most Supreme Magnificent Ruler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.64 billion Momstononistanians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Macroplex of Momstononistan. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Momstononistanian economy, worth a remarkable 8,377 trillion Preciouses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 535,654 Preciouses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,454,473 per year while the poor average 71,065, a ratio of 34.5 to 1.

The government spends millions of Preciouses every year prosecuting spammers, boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, and people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Momstononistan's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is not available.

Momstononistan is ranked 44,044th in the world and 1,126th in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 28.91 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
