Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Makem is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.49 billion Makemians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaumont. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Makemian economy, worth 927 trillion Free Markets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 97,682 Free Markets, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Makemian schoolgirl uniforms have become alarmingly popular outside Makem, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, the last thing Makemian soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Makem's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Makem is ranked 134,928th in the world and 142nd in Texas for Smartest Citizens, with 9.08 Quips Per Hour.
