The Commonwealth of Monianoli is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.984 billion Monianolians 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, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Defense and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Monianolian economy, worth a remarkable 3,185 trillion Kols a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 456,150 Kols, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,994,542 per year while the poor average 65,812, a ratio of 30.3 to 1.

Wildlife parks are packed with poachers yet increasingly devoid of animals, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", vehicular homicide by Monianolian ambassadors is a leading cause of death throughout the world's capital cities, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Monianoli's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Monianoli is ranked 112,623rd in the world and 3,653rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Average, scoring 33.3 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
