The United Republic of Menatolo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Ketua II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.781 billion 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 is mainly concerned with 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 53%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.

Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Menatolo's national animal is the 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 Credit and Pseudo-Credit.

Menatolo is ranked 1st in Austritaria and 433rd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 20 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
