The Republic of Kita Manedes is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vikram Octavius with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.068 billion Kita Manedesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 16.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kita Manedesian economy, worth 70.7 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 66,240 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, the government loves seeing the little people fight, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kita Manedes's national animal is the kiwi, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Jedism.

Kita Manedes is ranked 69,185th in the world and 3,211th in Osiris for Lowest Crime Rates, with 66.69 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
