Sekura Monto

Population8.638 billion

CapitalVerda Monto


The Social Democracy of Sekura Monto is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.638 billion Montoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verda Monto. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sekura Montoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,696 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 196,345 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. Crime is totally unknown. Sekura Monto's national animal is the moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sekura Monto is ranked 162,048th in the world and 3,748th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 96.6 billion Standard Monetary Units.
