The Republic of Vones Monourakal is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 385 million Vonesians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monourakalia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The thriving Vones Monourakalian economy, worth 36.4 trillion vonars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 94,520 vonars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 302,736 per year while the poor average 22,395, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.

Former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, the government pours millions of vonars into rehabilitation programs annually, thousands of former pirates can be found peddling knockoff products in flea markets, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime is almost non-existent. Vones Monourakal's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Vones Monourakal is ranked 155,367th in the world and 1,678th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 11.48 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
