The United Computer States of Macworld is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sandy Leaks with a fair hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, surprisingly youthful workforce, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.188 billion Macicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lincoln AD. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Macican economy, worth a remarkable 1,408 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 227,694 Pacific Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 875,445 per year while the poor average 40,781, a ratio of 21.5 to 1.

Electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and the children of Macworld are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Macworld's national animal is the German Shepherd Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mixed.

Macworld is ranked 111th in The North Pacific and 3,652nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 279 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
