The Macabees

Population44.587 billion

The Empire of the Golden Throne of The Macabees is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 44.587 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 16,292 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 365,412 Ríokmarks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,386,356 per year while the poor average 66,860, a ratio of 20.7 to 1.

College-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, and politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional. 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 37,195th in the world and 5th in Greater Dienstad for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 20.73 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
