The SSR of Moanapo is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by tutankhamun with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.38 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 76.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Moanapoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,472 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 336,278 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 971,096 per year while the poor average 92,388, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked. 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 2,874th in the world and 131st in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 4,829.8 Prayers Per Hour.
