Location: 1st Epitome United

Regional Influence: Powerbroker


The Kingdom of Mantesa is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The compassionate, devout population of 601 million Mantesans 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pentiscola. The average income tax rate is 46.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mantesan economy, worth 63.0 trillion Aquilas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,867 Aquilas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Mantesa, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mantesa's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mantesa is ranked 174,573rd in the world and 7th in 1st Epitome United for Most Primitive, scoring -143.45 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
