The Commonwealth of Menshland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Khannah Zofia Iakobiak with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.959 billion Menshn 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, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mensh'tat. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The thriving Menshish economy, worth 380 trillion Gleichmarks 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 mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 95,990 Gleichmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Khannah Zofia Iakobiak's bedroom, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, and hordes of tourists are ruining the environment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Menshland's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secularist-Humanism.

Menshland is ranked 196,405th in the world and 4,865th in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring -92.33 on the Rand Index.
