The Democratic MacPublic of MacPublic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by MacLeader with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.732 billion MacPublicians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MacCapital. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient MacPublician economy, worth 290 trillion Penunzens a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,318 Penunzens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm, and school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MacPublic's national animal is the Tardigrade, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is MacReligion.

MacPublic is ranked 227,937th in the world and 7,094th in Balder for Fattest Citizens, with 6.06 Obesity Rate.
