The Free Territory of Makhnovia

Population3.137 billion


The Free Land of The Free Territory of Makhnovia is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.137 billion Free Territory of Makhnovians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Free Territory of Makhnovian economy, worth 284 trillion Hryvnas 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, highly specialized black market in Information Technology and Pizza Delivery. 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 90,703 Hryvnas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, and dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Free Territory of Makhnovia's national animal is the Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Free Territory of Makhnovia is ranked 17,623rd in the world and 16th in Cobalt Network for Most Developed, scoring 78.26 on the Human Development Index.
