The Acharan Kingdom of The Manticoran Empire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Catherine with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.698 billion Manticorans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vicuna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Manticoran economy, worth a remarkable 3,585 trillion Manticoran Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 243,944 Manticoran Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 899,993 per year while the poor average 46,658, a ratio of 19.3 to 1.

International negotiations always lead to a lot of missile-laneous expenses, the nation is relieved that all of the recent madness has finally come to an end, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Manticoran Embarrassments, and in a fit of passion Queen Catherine has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Manticoran Empire's national animal is the Manticoran Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Manticoran Empire is ranked 24,122nd in the world and 11th in Federation of Allies for Most Patriotic, with 31.4 flags saluted per person per day.
