The Republic of Monsone is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Frederick Geiger with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.092 billion Monsonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seversvik. The average income tax rate is 70.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Monsonean economy, worth a remarkable 3,154 trillion Federalisks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 312,561 Federalisks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, lovesick people are told 'it's not them, it's you', advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, and seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Monsone's national animal is the Monsonian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Monsone is ranked 2,262nd in the world and 6th in Cape of Good Hope for Rudest Citizens, with 247.94 insults per minute.
