The United Peoples Democratic RE of New Makasta is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by High Supreme General Hoszt Enisten with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.447 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 relatively small, 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. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Makastiantin economy, worth a remarkable 7,865 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 631,954 Delta eagles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,057,146 per year while the poor average 18,445, a ratio of 274 to 1.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, 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 1,192nd in the world and 2nd in The League for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 274.17 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
