Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Principality of Menekar is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.403 billion Menekarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Menekarian economy, worth 162 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,785 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Menekar's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Menekar is ranked 135,082nd in the world and 170th in Wintreath for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.53 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
