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 museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.789 billion Manticorans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 2,632 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 243,953 Manticoran Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 891,828 per year while the poor average 47,334, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, in a fit of passion Queen Catherine has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, Manticoran politics is literally a blood sport, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. 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 205,404th in the world and 25th in Federation of Allies for Most Primitive, scoring -813.12 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
