The Republic of Makem is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.391 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 government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy 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 5.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Makemian economy, worth 534 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 83,710 Free Markets, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

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 50th in Texas and 16,163rd in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
