The Principality of Monolithos is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, vat-grown people, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 285 million Monos 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 Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aria. The average income tax rate is 32.4%.

The powerhouse Monolithosian economy, worth 29.3 trillion Doras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 102,770 Doras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

When people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime is totally unknown. Monolithos's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Monolithos is ranked 94,697th in the world and 63rd in Catholic for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 32.43 Effective Tax Rate.
