The United Federation of Monix is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lazarillo Torre with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, devout population of 1.296 billion Monixians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ignisia. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Monixian economy, worth 156 trillion R'units a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,060 R'units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, AIs make up a majority of the long-term warehouse population, the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, and political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monix's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Witnestarism.

Monix is ranked 7,932nd in the world and 208th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,277.68 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
