The Republic of Makum is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 350 million Makumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 30.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Makumian economy, worth 14.6 trillion Kumquats a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,645 Kumquats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, Makum's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, cars are banned, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime is totally unknown. Makum's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Makum is ranked 94,732nd in the world and 4,924th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,594.81 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
