The Mank

The Republic of The Mank is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.266 billion Mankians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Mankian economy, worth 77.5 trillion pounds 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 34,189 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, all recreational drugs are legal, The Mank is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Mank's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Mank is ranked 18,027th in the world and 27th in Social Liberal Union for Most Income Equality, scoring 73.18 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
