The Collapsing Singularity of Makinsanity is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Helping Hoof with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 15.556 billion Makinsane are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Singularity. The average income tax rate is 29.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Makinsane economy, worth a remarkable 1,629 trillion Thwarts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 104,738 Thwarts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, and the nation is noticeably more cheerful on Tuesdays. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Makinsanity's national animal is the Confused, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Apocalism.

Makinsanity is ranked 1,078th in the world and 3rd in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Most Cultured, scoring 292 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
