The Confederacy of Magnus Pecunia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 589 million Moneymen are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Financia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Magni Pecuni economy, worth 76.8 trillion gold bars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 130,462 gold bars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,118,968 per year while the poor average 2,596, a ratio of 431 to 1.

Charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, and grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Magnus Pecunia's national animal is the stock market bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Magnus Pecunia is ranked 215,462nd in the world and 9th in The Northlands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 10.74 Tourists Per Hour.
