Menyz, officially the Federal Republic of Menyz, is a country on Aranna with a total population of 58.4 million people.
Until 1843, Menyz was part of the Ahuan Realm, but separated in a short and very bloody war of independence, which lasted until 1850. As Ahua geared up for war in 1940, Menyz was thus on their list of conquests, which worried many people.

Menyz is dominated by the primary sector, agriculture, mining and forestry being the main employers of the country.
Menyz only has a limited industrial base, which isn't really powerful either.
The east of the country is dominated by a sizeable wool industry, from the sheep over the fabrics to the finished clothing being produced on the wide an sweeping plains of the Brandaba (between Sinntha, Sailliss, Faihu and Bargs. The good relations between Menyz, Bargs and Hrohasa allow for the export of the finished products via the Bargua with all three sides profiting from it.
Another important industry is the Oil Shale Industry, which is mined in open pits around Ceval and Iya. It is refined into Diesel Fuel locally, which is then exported all over Aranna or used locally.
