The Queen's State of Luis Manny is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.673 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 receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.
The very strong Luis Mannyian economy, worth 628 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.
Luis Manny is ranked 115th in Richard and 59,042nd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 72 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
