The Armed Republic of Mundanus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexandria Lantz with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 2.223 billion Mundanis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anastria. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mundanusian economy, worth 403 trillion Tsors a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,465 Tsors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, and citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mundanus's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Omnism.

Mundanus is ranked 2,302nd in the world and 2nd in Third Imperial Union for Most Armed, with 14.32 Weapons Per Person.
