The United Peoples Democratic RE of New Makasta is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by High Supreme General Hoszt Enisin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.264 billion Makastians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deeka. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Makastiantin economy, worth 209 trillion Delta eagles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 165,765 Delta eagles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 495,814 per year while the poor average 43,342, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

First-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Makasta's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

New Makasta is ranked 153,590th in the world and 27th in Micro Union for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 47.19 Workforce Participation Rate.
