The United Republic of Menatolo is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The World Heavyweight Champion El Pene with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.805 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 on the agenda. 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.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', and the government is avowedly atheist. 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 434th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 20 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
