The People's Republic of Mankerson is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Manky McMankerson with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.332 billion Mankersonese 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adamoville. The average income tax rate is 75.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Mankersonian economy, worth 457 trillion Manky Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 196,101 Manky Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and the statue in the Rudd Plaza has a solar panel for a hat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mankerson's national animal is the Feed Me A Stray Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mankerson is ranked 57,010th in the world and 2,359th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 53.33 on the Rand Index.
