The Free Territory of Makhnovia

Population2.402 billion


The Free Land of The Free Territory of Makhnovia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.402 billion Free Territory of Makhnovians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Free Territory of Makhnovian economy, worth 203 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, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 84,626 Hryvnas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody is forced to join the armed forces, sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants. 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 156,126th in the world and 44th in Cobalt Network for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -16.43 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
