The SSR of Moanapo is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by tutankhamun with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.984 billion Moanapoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astrakhan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Moanapoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,136 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 357,047 Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,405,086 per year while the poor average 61,580, a ratio of 22.8 to 1.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, Jennifer Government is banned, and the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Moanapo's national animal is the Liger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Militant Catholic.

Moanapo is ranked 5,447th in the world and 311th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,428.89 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
