The United Empire of Menatolo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The World Heavyweight Champion El Pene with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.887 billion Menatolians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Menatopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Menatolo's many privately-owned prisons, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and there are no minimum wage laws. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Menatolo's national animal is the Menatolian Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Church of Max Barry, and its currency is the Pseudo-Credit.

Menatolo is ranked 2nd in Austritaria and 614th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 330 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
