The United Empire of Menatolo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The World Heavyweight Champion El Pene with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.019 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, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 4,978 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 355,152 Pseudo-Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,028,559 per year while the poor average 97,181, a ratio of 10.6 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 10,405th in the world and 6th in Austritaria for Smartest Citizens, with 82.71 Quips Per Hour.
