The Empire of the Golden Throne of The Macabees is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.036 billion Macabees 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 Macabeesian economy, worth an astonishing 11,001 trillion Riokmarks 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 354,464 Riokmarks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,419,763 per year while the poor average 18,810, a ratio of 128 to 1.

The government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, and thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses. 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 169,349th in the world and 73rd in Greater Dienstad for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -50.5 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
