The Kingdom of Mantesa is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Diego IV Pictor with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, devout population of 879 million Mantesans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pentiscola. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Mantesan economy, worth 100 trillion Aquilas a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,125 Aquilas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 323,975 per year while the poor average 32,111, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Rumor has it that Diego IV Pictor has won three lotteries in a row, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and one year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Diego IV Pictor's office. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mantesa's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mantesa is ranked 61,530th in the world and 9th in 1st Epitome United for Highest Poor Incomes, with 32,111.73 Standard Monetary Units.
