The Kingdom of The Manyland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Tessa the first with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.427 billion Manylanders are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capitol. The average income tax rate is 68.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Manylandian economy, worth 444 trillion Nais a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 183,312 Nais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Queen Tessa the first's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, the latest guided missile cruiser "Ship-1642" has received precisely zero column inches in the press, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Manyland's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Manyland is ranked 1,291st in the world and 1st in Crystal Isle for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,209.12 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
