The Kingdom of Makonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Kresimir V with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 3.382 billion Makonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Welfare, and Spirituality are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bagata. The average income tax rate is 9.0%.

The Makonian economy, worth 250 trillion marks 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Tourism, and Retail. 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 74,080 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, the logging industry is celebrating as tourists plaster Makonia with trees, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, and dark net forums trade the encryption keys to immortality. Crime is totally unknown. Makonia's national animal is the fox.

Makonia is ranked 25,678th in the world and 10th in Meillur for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 191.96 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
