Manticore utopia

Population12.043 billion


Currencymanticore metical

The Republic of Manticore utopia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Cat with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.043 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 4,615 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 383,239 manticore meticals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

From the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Manticore utopia, the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. 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 154,511th in the world and 5,719th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.42 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
