Monkey 3

Population1.449 billion


The Republic of Monkey 3 is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.449 billion Monkey 3ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 29.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Monkey 3ian economy, worth 57.5 trillion rupees a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,687 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the arms industry is strictly regulated, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Monkey 3 in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monkey 3's national animal is the monkey, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Monkey 3 is ranked 147,720th in the world and 1,838th in Chicken overlords for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -7.38 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
