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 renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 11.838 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 aren't funded at all. 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 a remarkable 1,075 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 90,827 Free Markets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Male tourists tend to be fearful of Makem's deadly femme fatales, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, Tommy Makem's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, and tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of Makem's historical leaders at Mount Rushless. 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 67,696th in the world and 69th in Texas for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,512.98 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
