Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Principality of Menekar is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 1.028 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Menekarian economy, worth 115 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,647 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the World Principality Games have been won again by Menekar as no other country cares enough to compete, the government pours millions of marks into rehabilitation programs annually, and the Federal Council of Menekar has been announced as the new Head of State. 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 150,657th in the world and 283rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 29.12 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
