The Democratic MacPublic of MacPublic is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by MacLeader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.146 billion MacPublicians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MacCapital. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming MacPublician economy, worth 108 trillion Penunzens a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 94,437 Penunzens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MacPublic's national animal is the Tardigrade, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is MacAtheism.

MacPublic is ranked 185,862nd in the world and 172nd in New Western Empire for Most Primitive, scoring -222.7 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
