The Mod Scared Nation of Montrandec is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.999 billion Montrandecians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of United Cities. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Montrandecian economy, worth 222 trillion Montrandecian Golden Checks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 111,456 Montrandecian Golden Checks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 448,281 per year while the poor average 18,545, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

Getting an autograph has become harder than ever, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, the Montrandecian football team for the Maxxmas ceasefire consists only of Intelligence Corps personnel, and coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Montrandec's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Montrandec is ranked 177,568th in the world and 4th in Montrandecs Neighbours for Longest Average Lifespans, with 65.79 Years.
