The United Peoples Democratic RE of New Makasta is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by High Supreme General Hoszt Enisten with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.384 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 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Makastiantin economy, worth a remarkable 7,795 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 629,513 Delta eagles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,001,718 per year while the poor average 19,000, a ratio of 263 to 1.

Many rural villagers have never been more than a day's horse-ride from their birthplace, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', air purifiers fight smoke machines on Makastiantin stage setups, and aggravated apostrophe abusers are admonished and assaulted. 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 53,970th in the world and 48th in The League for Most Pro-Market, scoring 69.89 on the Rand Index.
