The United Peoples Democratic RE of New Makasta is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by High Supreme General Hoszt Enisin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, avowedly heterosexual populace, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 895 million 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 65.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Makastiantin economy, worth 122 trillion Delta eagles a year, is 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 137,080 Delta eagles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 418,115 per year while the poor average 34,857, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, foreign leaders who don't applaud High Supreme General Hoszt Enisin's speeches are regarded as enemies of New Makasta, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and High Supreme General Hoszt Enisin has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves. 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.

New Makasta is ranked 47,565th in the world and 5th in Micro Union for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,140.15 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
