The Republic of Makem is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.667 billion Makemians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaumont. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Makemian economy, worth 663 trillion Free Markets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 86,489 Free Markets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 257,163 per year while the poor average 22,805, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Makem successfully hosted the Texas Olympics, dark alleys and public toilets are filled with furtive sexual activities among teenagers and unmarried adults, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. Crime is moderate. Makem's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Makem is ranked 142nd in Texas and 125,249th in the world for Most Inclusive, scoring -126 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
