The Macabees

Population41.441 billion

AnimalImperial Eagle

The Empire of the Golden Throne of The Macabees is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 41.441 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, corrupt, 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 15,141 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 365,367 Ríokmarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,338,123 per year while the poor average 70,690, a ratio of 18.9 to 1.

Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air The Macabees flights to avoid the pay lavatories, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and solid-gold toilets are Macabean prisons' least expensive furnishings. 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 1,813th in the world and 2nd in Greater Dienstad for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 57 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
