The People's Republic of Monta-Isola is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Cals Setse Cardes with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.162 billion Lusitans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisvoa. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Monta-Isolan economy, worth 401 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 126,937 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody thinks that the Godfather was bettered by Part 2, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and Monta-Isolan soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monta-Isola's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Monta-Isola is ranked 160,747th in the world and 32nd in New Democratic Union for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
