- Origins and Background : The Forest of Mannar in "the real world" is a country in a shared world project called "Projekt Myra" - http://projektmyra.de - where an unlimited number of people describe and devellop and (if they want) simulate fantasy nations and parts thereof over an unlimited number of years. This is going on since 1982, in German language, but efforts have been undertaken to embrace english speaking players and writers and especially artists too.

- Nation description
The Borderlands of Mannar is a small, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 8 million are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Law & Order and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 35%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Furniture Restoration industry.
The pixy is a protected species, punitive tariffs protect local industry, surveillance cameras are banned, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime is well under control. Mannar's national animal is the pixy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the nature.
