The Empire of Mentopai is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 461 million Mentopaians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 30.1%.
The Mentopaian economy, worth 22.0 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 47,777 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.
Minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mentopai's national animal is the puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
