LeaderMarrick Hertzog


The Fourth Republic of Montarc is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Marrick Hertzog with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.544 billion Montarcians 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 relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komsa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Montarcian economy, worth 994 trillion Herns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 179,421 Herns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 794,918 per year while the poor average 25,291, a ratio of 31.4 to 1.

Financial investors are noting a boom in artillery, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, Montarc's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, and patriotic parents remind their children to drink plenty of water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Montarc's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Montarc is ranked 29,164th in the world and 1,457th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 85.43 Years.
