Menna Shuli

Population92 million


The Republic of Menna Shuli is a large, orderly nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 92 million Mennas are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 18.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Menna Shulian economy, worth 4.33 trillion xats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,076 xats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, and animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Menna Shuli's national animal is the ibex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Menna Shuli is ranked 93,798th in the world and 233rd in The Western Isles for Most Cultured, scoring 65 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
