Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Manticore utopia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.234 billion Manticore utopians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Manticore utopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,126 trillion manticore meticals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 266,158 manticore meticals, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games, prison visits increase substantially during election years, Leader's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and the Manticore utopian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime is totally unknown. Manticore utopia's national animal is the multiheaded manticore, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Manticore utopia is ranked 1,143rd in the world and 53rd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 22,597.34 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
