The Socialist Republic of Macere is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premiere Rachel Williams with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.931 billion Macereans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Macerean economy, worth 155 trillion Smis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 80,389 Smis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Macere's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Macere is ranked 155,177th in the world and 34th in The Coalition of Socialists for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -95.94 on the Hayek Index.
