The Dictatorship of Uslands Mangan is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 506 million Uslands Manganians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viktorgrad. The average income tax rate is 69.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Uslands Manganian economy, worth 56.2 trillion deniers a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,163 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Chemically brainwashed citizens praise Leader's name on an hourly basis, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Leader's praises, and anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uslands Mangan's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Uslands Mangan is ranked 137,784th in the world and 121st in Soviet Democracy for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.92 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
