The UB-32 of Socialist Macronesia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.756 billion Socialist Macronesians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Ross. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Macronesian economy, worth 803 trillion Macronesian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 291,407 Macronesian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

When shaking hands with foreign leaders John Ross wears an armoured gauntlet, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Macronesia's national animal is the DShK, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Socialist Macronesia is ranked 7,046th in the world and 1st in The 1985 Movie Clue for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 8,883.56 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
