The United Peoples Democratic RE of New Makasta is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Supreme General Hoszt Enisin with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.205 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 87.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Makastiantin economy, worth a remarkable 1,922 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 an amazing 457,269 Delta eagles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,127,950 per year while the poor average 24,114, a ratio of 129 to 1.

Babysitters are a thing of the past, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt. 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 228,744th in the world and 88th in The Interdimensional Community for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -247.53 on the Hayek Index.
