Manticore utopia

Population12.011 billion


Currencymanticore metical

The Republic of Manticore utopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Cat with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.011 billion Manticore utopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. The average income tax rate is 2.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Manticore utopian economy, worth a remarkable 4,592 trillion manticore meticals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 382,342 manticore meticals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Cat's desk, Manticore utopians seem to be catching more chills, scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, and the police insist that racism does not exist. Crime is totally unknown. Manticore utopia's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Manticore utopia is ranked 131st in the world and 7th in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 771.68 Insults Per Minute.
