The Dictatorship of Mak Kau Lonte is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 127 million Mak Lontes are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 32.0%.

The Mak Kau Lontean economy, worth 6.60 trillion Dapuds a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,961 Dapuds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, hazmat suits are a common Mak Kau Lontean garb, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Mak Kau Lonte's national animal is the Podis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mak Kau Lonte is ranked 121,818th in the world and 166th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -1.79 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
