The Republic of Makudu is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 401 million Makuduans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Espoir. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Makuduan economy, worth 20.2 trillion turtles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,311 turtles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Makudu's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
