Montego, officially The People's Republic of Montego, is a federal state with many towns spread across the New World of the MRT. It is a major power, with nearly 40 cities, and by far the largest nation to ever exist on the MRT. The state functions as an MPO, with various member cities united under a strong central government. The government meets in the largest city and capital Deadbush, where all major government agencies are headquartered.

Founded in 2018 as the People's Republic of Sunshine Coast, the republic soon expanded to encompass other towns, and was incorporated as the Kaktus Republic in early 2019. In May 2019, the Kaktus Republic and Mojang Union, the two largest superpowers at the time, effectively became one megaempire of vast proportions.

The nation is a pioneer in many fields of industry and technology, with a massive economy centered in Deadbush. Tourists from around the MRT visit the southern city of Sunshine Coast for tropical vacations, and as such the nation has a high amount of revenue from tourism. Montego pioneered the field of climate science, and runs a worldwide MRT Climate Data Service which gathers climate data for foreign cities and towns.

Any cities who wish to join may apply on the talk page.

History

Colonization

Many years ago, colonists from the overpopulated Old World migrated out to find the beautiful lands of the New World. Many cities were established in the center of the fertile lands, and population soon spread out into the more empty Epsilon Lands. In 2018, the city of Deadbush was founded, which grew into a world powerhouse.

Sunshine Coast

Meanwhile, the city of Sunshine Coast was founded, and this city also grew into a large and important city. Soon, president Echohue of Sunshine Coast declared it an independent republic. At the same time, Deadbush grew to massive scale, and former leader MojangChan declared the establishment of the Mojang Union.

Kaktus Republic

In early 2019, the Kaktus Republic was founded, and grew to a massive scale. It engaged in multiple foreign wars and gained territory across the MRT. Meanwhile, the Mojang Union slowly grew to become a major superpower alongside the Kaktus Republic.

Contemporary Era

In mid 2019, the Mojang Union and Kaktus Republic became one in the form of the People's Republic of Montego, the largest state to ever exist on the MRT. President Echohue hopes to make massive progress and advance the PRM to its glorious future as the leading nation of the world. Many projects have been proposed, including a massive freeway to the new capital, Deadbush, and many other infrastructure projects and other things.

Geography

The People's Republic of Montego is made up of over 30 cities, each with its own distinct climate and geography. The capital and largest city, Deadbush, is located in the Grand Mesa, but the nation is fairly evenly spread out across the MRT.

Climate

The climate of Montego varies wildly based on where you are. Generally, the southern parts of the country are fairly tropical, and the northern territories are far colder and (generally) wetter. Below are some examples of climates in Montego.

Government and Politics

System of Government

The system of government in Montego is that of a federal state, with a powerful central government but fairly independent states. Cities in Montego generally have freedom to do whatever, and can opt out of following any montego law. Cities controlled directly by the central government are Deadbush, also known as the Montegan Capital District, and the Special District of Sunshine Coast.

Military

The Montegan Military is one of the most powerful forces on the MRT. It is subdivided into the Montegan Grand Army, the Montegan Grand Navy, and the Montegan Grand Airforce. The Army has over 150,000 combat ready troops, and if the country goes to war another 1.5 million people are ready to be drafted. The Grand Navy is fairly small currently, with a small base in Sunshine Coast and another in Southport, but the government has planned to invest more in the navy in the future. The Montegan Air Force has a number of advanced jet fighters, and is developing other secret projects at the ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇. Some have accused the Montegan security state of spying on not only other countries but attempting to rig elections and sabotage interstate relations.

Foreign Policy

Montego's foreign policy is complex and diverse, with some cities having a more lax foreign policy than others. The nation has previously participated in an invasion of ▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇▇
