The Republic of Makem is a colossal, economically powerful 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 5.803 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 Tourism and Retail.

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 crippling. Makem's national animal is the Eagle, and its currency is the Free Market.

Makem is ranked 56th in Texas and 17,227th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 31 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
