Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Makem is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 10.003 billion Makemians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 3.1%.

The all-consuming Makemian economy, worth 967 trillion Free Markets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 96,680 Free Markets, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, and annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt. 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, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Makem is ranked 22,881st in the world and 32nd in Texas for Most Pro-Market, scoring 70.56 on the Rand Index.
