The Republic of Macondolantus is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 649 million Macondolantusians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.5%.

The very strong Macondolantusian economy, worth 44.8 trillion Macondo Bucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,079 Macondo Bucks, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, Macondolantus has designated Macondolantus City as its capital city, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Macondolantus's national animal is the Hippopotamus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Macondolantus is ranked 115,192nd in the world and 3,601st in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 1.46 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
