The SSR of Moanapo is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by tutankhamun with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, conspicuous electricity pylons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.624 billion Moanapoans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astrakhan. The average income tax rate is 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Moanapoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,874 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 377,045 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Public toilets are famed for their rear entries, commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Moanapo's national animal is the Liger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Militant Catholic.

Moanapo is ranked 240,341st in the world and 9,269th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4.93 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
