The Republic of Menziesii is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 491 million Aquila Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Defunct - Absorbed Into Aquila Islands. The average income tax rate is 9.9%.

The Aquila Islander economy, worth 27.1 trillion Aquila Islander Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 55,166 Aquila Islander Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Menziesii's national animal is the White-Tailed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Menziesii is ranked 70,906th in the world and 3,592nd in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 69.88 Workforce Participation Rate.
