The Sultanate of Monkistan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nelson Monkdela with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.916 billion Monkistanis 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, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monkow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Monkistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,886 trillion Denarii a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 272,756 Denarii, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, it's said that a Monkistani always pays his debts with significant compounding, dandruff and athlete's foot are seen as signs of physical beauty, and the government is giving peace a chance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Monkistan's national animal is the Monkee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monkism.

Monkistan is ranked 53,700th in the world and 187th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 7.69 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
