The Commonwealth of East Mantis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Brain Bug Queen with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.288 billion Mantisians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hive. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Mantisian economy, worth 146 trillion Bugs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 113,729 Bugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Mantis's national animal is the Mantis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hive Mind.

East Mantis is ranked 89,916th in the world and 1,576th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 146 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
