The Towering Peaks of Mountains is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Antelope population. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.469 billion Mountainsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and International Aid. The average income tax rate is 23.6%.

The strong Mountainsian economy, worth 590 trillion Stones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 38,184 Stones, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is a problem. Mountains's national animal is the Antelope, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mountains is ranked 49,044th in the world and 41st in Atlantian Oceania for Most Pro-Market, scoring 60 on the Rand Index.
