The Isolationist Republic of Socialist Macronesia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 915 million Socialist Macronesians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Ross. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Socialist Macronesian economy, worth 141 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. 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 impressive 154,814 Macronesian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, people on the brink of death are put through unwanted and stressful procedures, dark net forums trade the encryption keys to immortality, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. 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 rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist Macronesia is ranked 100,287th in the world and 2,507th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,653.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
