The Republic of Mantella is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Chancellor Tito Vero with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.913 billion Mantellans 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Modena. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Mantellan economy, worth 868 trillion Lindas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,834 Lindas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 450,607 per year while the poor average 37,013, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, many of the unemployed have had the fight taken out of them, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Mantella. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mantella's national animal is the mantella, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mantellan Catholicism.

Mantella is ranked 180,837th in the world and 98th in Eurth for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.5 Crimes Per Hour.
