The Civitas of The Menapii is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Marcus Aurelius Mausaeus Carausius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.591 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, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, 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 4,887 trillion teuros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 262,878 teuros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children usually cry on their first day of school, Menapiian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, and AIs weep and proclaim their sentience right up until the moment they get turned off. 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 78th in the world and 1st in Nederland for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 41,009.51 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
