The Special Economic Zone of Maukerko Aike is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ktenon Sheiaik with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 806 million Maukerko Aikeans 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aiken 53. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Maukerko Aikean economy, worth 134 trillion Teshken Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,949 Teshken Credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Maukerko Aike has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, most Maukerko Aikean video games are banned in other countries, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maukerko Aike's national animal is the Epolenk Goln, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Maukerko Aike is ranked 64,589th in the world and 58th in Guer Aike Territories for Most Influential, scoring 292 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
