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 renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.562 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 93.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Makastiantin economy, worth a remarkable 4,428 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 517,208 Delta eagles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,158,802 per year while the poor average 14,752, a ratio of 281 to 1.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. 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 7,311th in the world and 8th in The League for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 6,552.91 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
