Geedin Manta is the current Jankan Emperor (although more often refered to as Empress). She was placed in power following the close of the BlyDonian-Jankan war in which the then Jankan Emperor was assassinated.
Manta considers herself - correctly - to differ from the previous emperor greatly, possessing a more liberal and left-winged approach. She gave away her predecessors wealth in favor of improving her nation, and turned the Jankan administration in to a more modern, constituted and democratic administration rather than a centralized and self-interested one. She is firm and can be a good arguer above her skills as the leader of a nation, proven by her increase in GDP by 7% since she rose to power. The impressive estimated ecnomic growth of her regime is often conveyed by government give-aways, boosting morale.
She grew up in agriculture, just as most citizens of Janka at the time were. Her talents as a philosopher were recognized when she managed to get herself in to advanced education, using the dedicated gained from her family to climb her classes at school. She became a high-ranking government official, but had little power as it was centralized on the Emperor. With her study in to philosophy during her education, she demonstrated a superior ability to influence the emperor compared to other officials later in life, and eventually was selected by the others to succeed him after his death.
