The Commonwealth of Monianoli is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.969 billion Monianolians 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 minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Defense, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Monianolian economy, worth a remarkable 3,803 trillion Kols a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 477,288 Kols, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,190,369 per year while the poor average 8,073, a ratio of 519 to 1.

Bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, people can get away with murder these days, mass shootings have become the new normal, and hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Monianoli's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Monianoli is ranked 165,774th in the world and 3,979th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 24.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
