The Dictatorship of Macovi is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Dictator Orion Pinheiro with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.393 billion Macovians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northern Macovinia. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Macovian economy, worth 152 trillion handfuls a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,176 handfuls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, asking 'a penny for your thoughts?' draws law enforcement response, and lending money has become a major liability. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Macovi's national animal is the bird ɪ, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Macovi is ranked 283,951st in the world and 151st in The Free Nations Region for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.29 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
