The Monarchist Colony of Monarche is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Kias with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 910 million Monarcheans 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leviathan. The average income tax rate is 49.5%.

The powerhouse Monarchean economy, worth 102 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 112,325 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'Foxdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Monarche, heavily-armed commandos play rock-paper-scissors over whether to execute criminals and foreign visitors, and powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monarche's national animal is the Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Monarche is ranked 145,675th in the world and 23rd in First World Order for Most Stationary, with 26.7024829104 Days.
