The Special Economic Zone of Mamen Aike is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ktenon Sheiaik with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.153 billion Mamen Aikeans 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aiken 37. The average income tax rate is 87.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mamen Aikean economy, worth 612 trillion Teshken Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 284,332 Teshken Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mamen Aike's national animal is the Epolenk Goln, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of Aluen.

Mamen Aike is ranked 38,468th in the world and 38th in Guer Aike Territories for Most Influential, scoring 737 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
