The Fourth Republic of Montarc is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Romuald O'Hannon with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 7.253 billion Montarcians 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, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komsa. The average income tax rate is 57.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Montarcian economy, worth a remarkable 1,209 trillion Herns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 166,690 Herns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Financial investors are noting a boom in artillery, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, Montarc's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, and patriotic parents remind their children to drink plenty of water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Montarc's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Montarc is ranked 241,822nd in the world and 9,213th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 19.49 Whatever.
