The Matriarchy of Mantas Meow is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ludmya Bourdeau with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and enforced nudity. The compassionate population of 8.956 billion Mantas Meowans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Redire Ver Sin. The average income tax rate is 76.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Mantas Meowan economy, worth a remarkable 1,675 trillion Hekates a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,048 Hekates, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, and many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mantas Meow's national animal is the Great Dane, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Childern of Imasret Resurrected.

Mantas Meow is ranked 183,453rd in the world and 8,083rd in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 6.63 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
