The Lucky Question Mark﹖ of Makdon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by ????? with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.299 billion ????? live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ?????. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming ????? economy, worth 700 trillion gold for easter eggs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 162,913 gold for easter eggs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 992,614 per year while the poor average 11,833, a ratio of 83.9 to 1.

All recreational drugs are legal, lavish state dinners in ????? are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, and it's rumored that Marche Noire knows what the nation's generals eat for breakfast. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Makdon's national animal is the ghost ?????, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is ?????.

Makdon is ranked 224,852nd in the world and 6,350th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -20.25 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
