The Republic of The City of Menifee is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bill Zimmerman with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.476 billion Menifeers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 29844 Haun Rd Menifee. The average income tax rate is 27.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Menifeer economy, worth 162 trillion US Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,887 US Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, the entire entry for The City of Menifee in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', Bill Zimmerman claims to be the epitome of family values, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. The City of Menifee's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Riverside County.

The City of Menifee is ranked 90,428th in the world and 62nd in The Cities of Southern California for Most Avoided, scoring 2.67 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
