The Princely Republic of Menna Shuli is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by 'uhitap spu Kashaka with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.161 billion Mennas 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shuhakallu and Mihekallu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Menna Shulian economy, worth 413 trillion xats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 130,811 xats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 393,609 per year while the poor average 33,913, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

When the air force says "Black Hawk Down" they mean the feathers of the Menna Shulian dark-plume goshawk, wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and education for the poor is learning to ask "do you want fries with that?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Menna Shuli's national animal is the Great White Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is 'unux.

Menna Shuli is ranked 27,659th in the world and 93rd in The Western Isles for Most Developed, scoring 68.49 on the Human Development Index.
