The Illuminated Autocracy of Max Empire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Max the wearer-of-many-crowns with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.203 billion Maxians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maxopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Maxian economy, worth an astonishing 10,881 trillion Maxian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 566,671 Maxian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Max Empire after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Max Empire's national animal is the Maxian bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Maxism.

Max Empire is ranked 234,892nd in the world and 1st in Phoenix Coalition for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -730.27 on the Hayek Index.
