The Dictatorship of Monkyape is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 336 million Apeses are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Troll Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.8%.

The Monkyapean economy, worth 19.7 trillion Apes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,702 Apes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 172,528 per year while the poor average 15,734, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

Artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, and rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monkyape's national animal is the Polar Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Monkyape is ranked 73,526th in the world and 1,467th in the Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 59.49 on the Human Development Index.
