The Queen's State of Luis Manny is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.151 billion Luis Mannyians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.
The very strong Luis Mannyian economy, worth 696 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 45,988 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 445,883 per year while the poor average 228, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.
A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, the tenet of free speech is held dear, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the nation's favourite colour is blue (Luis Manny has found 1 easter egg). Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Luis Manny's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is none.
