The Commonwealth of East Mantis is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, compulsory vegetarianism, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 822 million Mantisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hive. The average income tax rate is 35.8%.

The all-consuming East Mantisian economy, worth 95.3 trillion Bugs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 115,877 Bugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and life expectancy is way down but posthuman perfectionism is way up. 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.

East Mantis is ranked 12,261st in the world and 385th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 74,393.07 Standard Monetary Units.
