The Casual State of Makiland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Mighty Powerful Makiman with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 20.161 billion Makilandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blueberrymuffintop City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Makilandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,253 trillion Blueberry Jam Jars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 161,400 Blueberry Jam Jars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Makiland's hospitals, research grant proposals read like political diatribes, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, and destitute athletes are forced to train in the street. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Makiland's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Makiland is ranked 3,125th in the world and 4th in Hippy Haven for Smartest Citizens, with 154.28 quips per hour.
