The Illuminated Autocracy of Max Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Max the wearer-of-many-crowns with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.323 billion Maxians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maxopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Maxian economy, worth an astonishing 12,556 trillion Maxian Dollars 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, 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 a breathtaking 588,860 Maxian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, glamping Maxians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and protests are prohibited from blocking traffic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Max Empire's national animal is the Maxian bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Maxism.

Max Empire is ranked 238,099th in the world and 2nd in Phoenix Coalition for Fattest Citizens, with 3.01 Obesity Rate.
