The Third Republic of Montarc is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lázló Tur with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.977 billion Montarcians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komsa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Montarcian economy, worth 703 trillion Herns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 176,784 Herns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 551,798 per year while the poor average 43,487, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

The government says only criminals harp on about "innocent until proven guilty", the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, it is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Montarcian restaurants, and chemically brainwashed citizens praise Lázló Tur's name on an hourly basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Montarc's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Montarc is ranked 17,623rd in the world and 949th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 77.86 on the Human Development Index.
