The Empire of Montrabeque is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Harley Lane III with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.063 billion Montrabequeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jasada. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Montrabequean economy, worth 111 trillion Anas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 105,021 Anas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is no other place with more lab coats per square mile than former houses of worship, the populace harbors a fierce hatred of the metric system, jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Montrabeque's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Austinism.

Montrabeque is ranked 9,781st in the world and 558th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,692.33 Tourists Per Hour.
