The Shakespearean Ghost Writer of Typing Monkeys is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its fear of technology, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.803 billion Typing Monkeysians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stratford-upon-Avon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Typing Monkeysian economy, worth a remarkable 2,732 trillion qwerties a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,324 qwerties, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Typing Monkeys as a reminder of their "special relationship", the Typing Monkeysian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and immigrants who don't like the taste of Typing Monkeysian Turnip Chips are immediately deported. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Typing Monkeys's national animal is the qwerty, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Typing Monkeys is ranked 45,621st in the world and 8th in Testregionia for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,789.76 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
