The Metropolis of Manhattan is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 15.821 billion Manhattanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 33.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Manhattanian economy, worth 438 trillion shares a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,700 shares, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Manhattan's national animal is the Police Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Manhattan is ranked 3,528th in the world and 14th in New York for Most Stationary, with 2,507.7067284 Days.
