Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Makem is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.817 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, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. 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 927 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, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is 94,450 Free Markets, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas, auditors are gutting every governmental department, children are expected to carve their own toys, and heavily subsidised Makemian baskets litter the streets of Texas. Crime is a problem, 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 73,199th in the world and 92nd in Texas for Highest Poor Incomes, with 26,888.84 Standard Monetary Units.
