The Rogue Nation of Momstononistan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Most Supreme Magnificent Ruler with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.457 billion Momstononistanians 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Macroplex of Momstononistan. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Momstononistanian economy, worth a remarkable 7,577 trillion Preciouses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 524,131 Preciouses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,864,740 per year while the poor average 49,023, a ratio of 58.4 to 1.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, traffic news is delivered to drivers via carrier pigeon, and foreign football clubs wave the Momstononistanian flag before every game. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Momstononistan's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is not available.

Momstononistan is ranked 312th in the world and 7th in the Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 21,075.17 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
