The Benevolent Dictatorship of Mondeca is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Aditya Sachdev with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.052 billion Mondecans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castor. The average income tax rate is 46.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mondecan economy, worth 98.6 trillion Mondecan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,692 Mondecan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, Castor's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", and escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mondeca's national animal is the Red Neck Octopus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Mondeca is ranked 31,722nd in the world and 15th in The 1st Entente for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 154.29 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
