The Kingdom of Macadameia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The devout population of 396 million Macadameians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edenza. The average income tax rate is 42.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Macadameian economy, worth 9.62 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 24,300 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, local government operates tolls on every village road, and teachers label difficult children as "somebody else's problem" before expelling them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Macadameia's national animal is the Abondance Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Macadameia is ranked 82,734th in the world and 1st in The West Isles for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,277.03 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
