Monkey 6

Population2.864 billion


The Republic of Monkey 6 is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 2.864 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 17.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Monkey 6ian economy, worth 106 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 37,136 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 109,202nd in the world and 352nd in Chicken overlords for Most Average, scoring 36.67 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
