Regional Influence: Apprentice


The Federal Republic of Montecaro is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President John Durham with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.505 billion Montecarans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monteria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Montecaran economy, worth 298 trillion Monos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 119,222 Monos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 483,393 per year while the poor average 19,573, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Foreign nationals are widely distrusted, the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, people with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Montecaro's national animal is the Swordfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Montecaro is ranked 39,790th in the world and 82nd in Anteria for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,514.32 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
