The Republic of Makem is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.447 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 concentrates mainly on 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 Retail and Information Technology.

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 can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its currency is the Free Market.

Makem is ranked 102nd in Texas and 85,396th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3.5 Net Tourists per hour.
