The Directorate State of Monix

Location: The East Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Directorate State of Monix is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lazarillo Torre with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.264 billion Monixians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Monixian economy, worth 155 trillion R'units a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,340 R'units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, new "Commiserations! It's An Accident!" greetings cards for expectant mothers are selling surprisingly quickly, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 159,383rd in the world and 5,997th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 29.9 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
