Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Makem is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 10.467 billion Makemians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaumont. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The all-consuming Makemian economy, worth 996 trillion Free Markets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which 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 95,199 Free Markets, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Future leaders of Makem regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, the only position a woman can hold is baby-maker, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Makem's national animal is the Eagle.

Makem is ranked 11,535th in the world and 31st in Texas for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 142.08 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
