The Federation of Makowi Hydo is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 469 million Makowi Hydoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Makowi Hydoan economy, worth 25.5 trillion Dongs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 54,422 Dongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Gun regulations are so strict even staple guns and hot glue guns are illegal, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Makowi Hydo's national animal is the Platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
