The United Empire of Menatolo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The World Heavyweight Champion El Pene with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.81 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, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, 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 3,094 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 351,233 Pseudo-Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,223,828 per year while the poor average 73,392, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Menatolo's national animal is the Menatolian Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Max Barry.
