The Kingdom of Mandurium is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 725 million Mandurians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manduria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Manduriumian economy, worth 95.3 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,502 Lire, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 489,657 per year while the poor average 24,788, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Mandurians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mandurium's national animal is the Vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mandurium is ranked 249,451st in the world and 13,042nd in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.93 crimes per hour.
