The Macabees

Population34.442 billion

AnimalImperial Eagle

The Empire of the Golden Throne of The Macabees is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 34.442 billion Macabeans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Macabean economy, worth an astonishing 12,378 trillion Ríokmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 359,412 Ríokmarks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,334,435 per year while the poor average 22,053, a ratio of 105 to 1.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Macabees's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Macabees is ranked 4,316th in the world and 6th in Greater Dienstad for Smartest Citizens, with 126.6 Quips Per Hour.
