Manticore utopia

Population10.396 billion


Currencymanticore metical

The Republic of Manticore utopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.396 billion Manticore utopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Manticore utopian economy, worth a remarkable 3,593 trillion manticore meticals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 345,663 manticore meticals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, and urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens. Crime is totally unknown. Manticore utopia's national animal is the Vampire, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Manticore utopia is ranked 207,087th in the world and 9,131st in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -1118.92 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
