West Maninjau

Population1.142 billion

CapitalManinjau Port


The Dominion of West Maninjau is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.142 billion Maninnese 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maninjau Port. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped West Maninjauan economy, worth 42.4 trillion Zenies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 37,155 Zenies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", Leader lives life on the open road - complete with groupies, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Maninjau's national animal is the Cockroach, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West Maninjau is ranked 26,367th in the world and 1,363rd in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,256.92 Tourists Per Hour.
