The Dictatorship of Macunaima is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 280 million Macunaimen are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antropofacity. The average income tax rate is 59.5%.

The Macunaiman economy, worth 12.8 trillion Mangaluses a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,862 Mangaluses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Minority children find the right answer in school tests is always the most insulting one, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Macunaima's national animal is the toucan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Macunaima is ranked 192,178th in the world and 18th in RIUVV for Highest Economic Output, with 12.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
