The Lucky Question Mark﹖ of Makdon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by ????? with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.831 billion ????? enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ?????. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient ????? economy, worth 616 trillion gold for easter eggs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 160,811 gold for easter eggs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 933,882 per year while the poor average 13,120, a ratio of 71.2 to 1.

Vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make ????? mussels the biggest in the Rejected Realms, kids are exceptionally good at digging holes, the state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Makdon's national animal is the ghost ?????, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is ?????.

Makdon is ranked 13,962nd in the world and 135th in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring 87.67 on the Rand Index.
