Darth Maki

Population598 million


The Confederacy of Darth Maki is a huge, safe nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 598 million Darth Makians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 53.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Darth Makian economy, worth 37.1 trillion Akims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,979 Akims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, parents tell their children 'what a lovely mistake you turned out to be', and when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darth Maki's national animal is the Maki, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Darth Maki is ranked 36,823rd in the world and 1,832nd in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,143.36 Tourists Per Hour.
