Manso, officially the Kingdom of Manso (Reino do Manso, in Portuguese), is a parliamentary constitutional monarchy based in the cities of Cuiabá and Chapada dos Guimarães. The main and most notable aspect of the country is the embodiment, by its citizens, of an "arcadia" from Mato Grosso, highlighting a life in the midst of nature the simplicity and joy of the countryside. In addition, Manso, as a micronational project, is an important vector for the dissemination of local culture, especially the particularities of life in Cuiabá, and famous for having the capybara, a very common, native animal in the region, as its national symbol. The organizational climate is inclusive and friendly, making the kingdom one of the most stable micronations in Portuguese speaking countries, which is also widely recognized for hosting educational micronational events.
The microstate is homonymous with the lake that bathes its territory to the north, where the property of the family of Marina I was located and the initial territorial claim of Manso.
The Manso Kingdom adopts the system of parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy, the Prime Minister is the Head of Government and the Queen is the Head of State.
Historically, the PNT (Nacional Labor Party) emerged as a party of the left minority, but since 2019 it has became the largest and most active national party, with three-fifths of parliament and the summit of the executive government, in the majority. The recent entry of new citizens in the kingdom has contributed to a renovation in the other parties that has managed, little by little, to resume their activities.
This resurgence of the right-wing parties was fundamental to the development and political maturation of the kingdom, which has shown good results mainly within the legislative house.

The Prime Minister, with the assistance of the Ministers of State, exercises executive power. Ministers are appointed by the Prime Minister, who is elected by voting according to the Condorcet method . The mandate has an indefinite time, and ends with the dismissal by the Monarch.
It is also up to the Prime Minister to appoint the judges of the Royal Court of Manso.
The summit of the Executive Power is affectionately called Politiburo, a reference to the offices of the macro communist parties, due to the fact that the current ministerial staff is mostly affiliated with the National Labor Party.
The Parliament is formed after an election every 4 (four) months, coordinated by the President of the Royal Court of Manso, who has the duty of proposing, deliberating and voting on draft laws that will be sanctioned by the Queen. Currently, the Parliament has 5 seats, to be occupied by the proportional approval voting system .
Although it has been historically difficult for the kingdom to maintain an active parliament, the current legislature (V Legislature) demonstrates an unparalleled productivity and has managed to move ahead with an agenda of tasks that had been accumulated for almost a year. Which was a watershed for the kingdom's legislative activity.
The Judiciary is administered by the Royal Court of Manso. The judiciary body is made up of a presiding judge and two other collegiate judges, and affiliation with political parties is prohibited. Due to the characteristics of Mansean society, it is rare for judges to have an occupation with infractions and attacks against the Constitution, the most exercised activities are conducting national elections and public consultations, in the form of referendums and plebiscites.
The Kingdom claims the macro territory befitting the municipalities of Cuiabá and Chapada dos Guimarães, in Mato Grosso. Its internal divisions are based on the 2019 IBGE census tracts.
Without expansionist pretensions, the kingdom follows a natural and spontaneous growth of its territory, usually these claims for new lands are preceded by notable political events, such as the RUPA x South American Micronations Conflict, which resulted in the expansion of Manso into the current territory. There are internal movements that carry out constant pressure for the annexation of more territories, movements that do not find support in the royal cabinet and divide opinions within the top of the government.
The modest Mansean territorial pretensions, in contrast to nearby micronations that occupy states and even entire macro countries, transform it into a kind of enclave, making no direct border with any other known micronation and being surrounded by nullius land.
The division of the kingdom takes place mainly in districts and duchies, linked to these larger divisions are smaller territorial units, brands, counties, viscounties and baronies.
All territorial divisions carry an associated title of nobility, but these nobles do not act in the administration of their domains.

The kingdom's internal economy is timid, and lacks a better supply and demand dynamic. The main source of income is still the public service, and it is also possible to raise money through activities in the forum.
Treaties are currently being negotiated to improve the interaction of an intermicronational economy with member nations of the Queluz Group , with a view to facilitating currency conversion and enabling business operations in all member states.

As a derivative nation , Manso did not attribute to itself a fictitious or imported culture from another existing nation in the macro. All its expression and cultural development take place naturally, thanks to the daily activity and interaction of its citizens.
Manso has the peculiarity of officially having two national flags. The first, a yellow ipe flower with a blue background and yellow border, is the traditional one used in times of peace. Already in times of war, the other flag is used, keeping the blue background, but now bringing the Cross of the Order of Christ in yellow with extended arms and bearing the ipe flower in the center over a circle.
