The United Empire of Menatolo is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The World Heavyweight Champion El Pene with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.375 billion Menatolians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Menatopia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Menatoloan economy, worth a remarkable 4,433 trillion Pseudo-Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 358,296 Pseudo-Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,034,306 per year while the poor average 98,487, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Menatolian Bear Lasagne is a hit, Menatopia is a police state during international summits, The World Heavyweight Champion El Pene's mistress is the belle at many state balls, and the Menatolian Bear is reportedly extinct. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Menatolo's national animal is the Menatolian Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Max Barry.

Menatolo is ranked 785th in the world and 1st in Austritaria for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 19,521.45 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
