The Republic of Mantella is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High Chancellor Tito Vero with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.51 billion Mantellans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Modena. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Mantellan economy, worth a remarkable 1,004 trillion Lindas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 154,353 Lindas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Long-wed spouses often regret proposals they made when they were twenty, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", a stitch in time could see you serving nine, and citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mantella's national animal is the mantella, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mantellan Catholicism.

Mantella is ranked 123,675th in the world and 64th in Eurth for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 792.63 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
