Monkey 6

Population1.142 billion


The Republic of Monkey 6 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 1.142 billion Monkey 6ians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 17.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Monkey 6ian economy, worth 42.3 trillion deniers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,012 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's reputation for treachery has left it sidelined on the international stage, nothing gets the party jumping like Leader specifying how high, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, and barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Monkey 6 City Natural History Museum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Monkey 6's national animal is the monkey.

Monkey 6 is ranked 123,013th in the world and 1,700th in Chicken overlords for Most Pro-Market, scoring 28 on the Rand Index.
