The Empire of Felix Mann is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bobby Fisher with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, soft-spoken computers, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.267 billion Felix Mannians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Felix Mannian economy, worth a remarkable 2,000 trillion pesos 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, quite specialized black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 amazing 215,920 pesos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 760,266 per year while the poor average 44,401, a ratio of 17.1 to 1.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and teachers regularly paddle unruly students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Felix Mann's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chess.

Felix Mann is ranked 2,621st in the world and 1st in Kantrias for Fattest Citizens, with 35.8 Obesity Rate.
