The Republic of Monix is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lazarillo Torre with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, devout population of 1.144 billion Monixians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ignisia. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Monixian economy, worth 135 trillion R'units a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,709 R'units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Monixian Desert, the government operates on the idea that you can't be betrayed if you get your betrayals in first and fastest, police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program, and interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monix's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Freedom of Religion.

Monix is ranked 22,736th in the world and 626th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 118,709.86 Standard Monetary Units.
