The Republic of Makem is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tommy Makem with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.663 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, with Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 4.1%.

The all-consuming Makemian economy, worth a remarkable 1,166 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 92,145 Free Markets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

People talk about things being better when men were men, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, candidates celebrate "free speech" by spraying champagne all over anyone who shows up to a rally, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. 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 161,447th in the world and 144th in Texas for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 12.72 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
