The Macabees

Population38.55 billion

AnimalImperial Eagle

The Empire of the Golden Throne of The Macabees is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 38.55 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 14,050 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 364,480 Ríokmarks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,364,760 per year while the poor average 68,100, a ratio of 20.0 to 1.

Internet trolls are considered valiant supporters of the right to free speech, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, there's no such thing as bad publicity, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. 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 21,919th in the world and 5th in Greater Dienstad for Most Politically Free, scoring 82.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
