The Kingdom of Mombata is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by König Karl von Kassel-Lothringen with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.565 billion Mombatans 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 Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Kessel. The average income tax rate is 38.9%.

The very strong Mombatan economy, worth 124 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 79,780 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

School children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning, Mombatan watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, and historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mombata's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mombata is ranked 117,281st in the world and 5,676th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 10.46 Prayers Per Hour.
