The Principality of Monforte is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Your Highness with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 11.018 billion Monforteans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monfortinho. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Monfortean economy, worth a remarkable 1,192 trillion Monfortis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 108,238 Monfortis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 335,757 per year while the poor average 26,865, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Monforte's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Progressive Christianity.

Monforte is ranked 218,667th in the world and 21st in Teremara for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 144.26 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
