The United Socialist States of Manonmanistan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Thom Crews with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.488 billion Manonmanistanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolisp. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The thriving Manonmanistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,238 trillion plugs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 107,832 plugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most ambassadors from Manonmanistan retire only a few years after being appointed, money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and the Manonmanistanian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Manonmanistan's national animal is the portable gerbil, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Manonmanistan is ranked 9,698th in the world and 125th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 93.76 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
