The Republic of Makem is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.261 billion Makemians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is mainly concerned with Defence, although Religion & Spirituality and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaumont. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Retail.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence. Crime is crippling. Makem's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its currency is the Free Market.

Makem is ranked 160th in Texas and 109,902nd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -34 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
