The Ramen Restuarant of Manpuku is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Chef with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.346 billion Manpukuans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Long Name Ramen. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Manpukuan economy, worth 192 trillion Manpuku Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,178 Manpuku Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated, it is often said that only The Chef could bring down Dàguó, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, and nobody is allowed to mention what religion terrorists follow. Crime is totally unknown. Manpuku's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Manpuku is ranked 222,482nd in the world and 24th in Hiyamashu for Most Primitive, scoring -405.67 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
