Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Makem is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.647 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Spirituality are 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 7.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Makemian economy, worth a remarkable 1,009 trillion Free Markets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 104,623 Free Markets, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

Folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Makem's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Makem is ranked 37,609th in the world and 67th in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 61.47 on the Human Development Index.
