The United Maritime Republics of Maanenland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Director Alex Dubois with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 19.423 billion Maanlanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Franc. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Maanenic economy, worth a remarkable 4,725 trillion Jetons a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 243,302 Jetons, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, farting etiquette is taught in schools, and the government is pouring funds into the nation's welfare system. Crime is totally unknown. Maanenland's national animal is the Fou de Bassan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Maanenland is ranked 2,801st in the world and 54th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 96.93 on the Human Development Index.
