Mensa, meaning "table" in the Latin language, is the largest high-IQ society in the world founded in 1946 in England, with the aim to create a community free from all racial and religious distinctions. It is the oldest non-profit organization in the world and the only criterion for admission to Mensa is achieving a score in the top 2 percentile of a standard IQ test.

Each MENSA member country has its own national Mensa constitution based on Mensa's Minimum Constitutional Requirements. 

Erudera reported that out of 11 Balkan countries, 7 of them being part of Mensa, Bulgaria is placed 5th on the list with over 130 Mensa members.
