In the title compound, the oxalate ligand simultaneously bridges both Mn-centred and Na-centred octahedra to produce a unique ‘doubly-interpenetrated’ perovskite-like lattice with an unconventional octahedral tilt system. In turn, the coordination requirements of the oxalate ligand lead to a rare ‘twisted’ conformation.
