East Mantis

Population855 million

CapitalThe Hive


The Commonwealth of East Mantis is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 855 million Mantisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hive. The average income tax rate is 34.5%.

The all-consuming East Mantisian economy, worth 100 trillion Bugs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 117,316 Bugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and life expectancy is way down but posthuman perfectionism is way up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Mantis's national animal is the Mantis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Mantis is ranked 51,529th in the world and 1,574th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 91.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
