Manokan Republic

Population2.889 billion


The Republic of Manokan Republic is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.889 billion Manokan Republicians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Manokan Republician economy, worth 244 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,536 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed, and going on a diet invalidates your passport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Manokan Republic's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Manokan Republic is ranked 27,859th in the world and 704th in the West Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 49.17 Quips Per Hour.
