The Lucky Question Mark﹖ of Makdon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by ????? with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.967 billion ????? enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ?????. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient ????? economy, worth 639 trillion gold for easter eggs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 161,253 gold for easter eggs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 942,992 per year while the poor average 12,943, a ratio of 72.9 to 1.

Costume parties are swarmed by plainclothes police officers in disguise (Makdon has found 7 easter eggs), "Day of the Rope" is the top song of the summer, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, and voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Makdon's national animal is the ghost ?????, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is ?????.

Makdon is ranked 71,034th in the world and 1,289th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 69.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
