The Principality of Macere is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Governor General Sir Tom Morgan with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 5.274 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Macerean economy, worth 519 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 and Tourism. Average income is 98,514 Smis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. 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 7,566th in the world and 16th in The Socialist Syndicalist Union for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 79.05 Workforce Participation Rate.
