The Grand Kingdom of Manches is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by William Edwards with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.779 billion Manchesians 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 Trafalgar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Manchesian economy, worth 693 trillion Manchesian Pounds 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. Average income is an impressive 145,039 Manchesian Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 469,506 per year while the poor average 33,834, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

The mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy", raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, and the police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Manches's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Presbyterianism.

Manches is ranked 60,378th in the world and 15th in Iveagh for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
