The Civitas of The Menapii is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marcus Aurelius Mausaeus Carausius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.427 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 6,300 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 268,935 teuros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Too many developers spoil the codebase, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, and all the world's a stage for Menapiian political theatrics. 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 92nd in the world and 1st in Nederland for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 4,973.39 Tourists Per Hour.
