The Nationstates Nation of Makersaulache is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arthur Dent with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.719 billion Makersaulacheans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stronaf. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Makersaulachean economy, worth 498 trillion Fleks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 134,113 Fleks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, the dwindling faithful in the nation make expensive pilgrimages to the remaining places of worship, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, and pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Makersaulache's national animal is the Wacka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Just have a good time however you choose.

Makersaulache is ranked 198,916th in the world and 8,744th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.01 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
