The United Peoples Democratic RE of New Makasta is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by High Supreme General Hoszt Enisten with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.787 billion Makastians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 93.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Makastiantin economy, worth a remarkable 4,557 trillion Delta eagles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 518,699 Delta eagles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,211,283 per year while the poor average 14,107, a ratio of 298 to 1.

Only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise High Supreme General Hoszt Enisten on New Makasta's coulrophobia epidemic, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 258,959th in the world and 304th in The League for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -88 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
