The German Rivers of Manaime is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Westphalian Manaimians with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.404 billion Reddons 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater Rhinae. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Reddish economy, worth 619 trillion Reddish rubleses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,678 Reddish rubleses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction, and oracles predict landslide victories for Westphalian Manaimians for the next 50 years. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Manaime's national animal is the red koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is German Catholicism.

Manaime is ranked 26,663rd in the world and 1,311th in Balder for Highest Economic Output, with 619 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
