The Armed Republic of Mundanus is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 731 million Mundanis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anastria. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Mundanusian economy, worth 77.7 trillion Tsors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 106,232 Tsors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", the nation has nearly as many history museums as Mundanis, and politicians have tenure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mundanus's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mundanus is ranked 9,272nd in the world and 173rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 55.21 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
