The Civitas of The Menapii is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Marcus Aurelius Mausaeus Carausius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.777 billion Menapiians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castellum Menapiorum. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Menapiian economy, worth a remarkable 6,973 trillion teuros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 270,520 teuros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing, news headlines suggest that Marcus Aurelius Mausaeus Carausius has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Menapii's national animal is the presidential candidate, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Menapii is ranked 149th in the world and 1st in Nederland for Most Beautiful Environments, with 8,962.05 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
