Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Makem is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 10.722 billion Makemians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, moralistic government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaumont. The average income tax rate is 4.0%.

The powerhouse Makemian economy, worth 973 trillion Free Markets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 90,781 Free Markets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters, workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, it is a silent spring in Makem, and formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Makem's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Makem is ranked 57,050th in the world and 78th in Texas for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 4,845.38 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
