The Commonwealth of Manches is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by James Kenneth with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.711 billion Canadians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ottawa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Manchesian economy, worth 986 trillion Canadian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,002 Canadian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 461,710 per year while the poor average 35,836, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, vehicular homicide by Manchesian ambassadors is a leading cause of death throughout the world's capital cities, teenagers are severely punished for being out too late, and hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Manches's national animal is the North American beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Manches is ranked 107,735th in the world and 4,401st in Balder for Most Authoritarian, with 611.87 milliStalins.
