Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Makem is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.142 billion Makemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaumont. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.8%.

The all-consuming Makemian economy, worth 804 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 88,031 Free Markets, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Political dissidents are cut off from essential services, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Makem's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Makem is ranked 157,055th in the world and 138th in Texas for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 67.74 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
