The United Empire of Menatolo is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The World Heavyweight Champion El Pene with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.445 billion Menatolians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Menatopia. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Menatoloan economy, worth a remarkable 2,960 trillion Pseudo-Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 350,572 Pseudo-Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 989,592 per year while the poor average 99,416, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.
Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, most academic research has ground to a halt, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and cities are engulfed by smog. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Menatolo's national animal is the Menatolian Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Church of Max Barry.
