The Isolationist Republic of Socialist Macronesia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by John Ross with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 944 million Socialist Macronesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Ross. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Socialist Macronesian economy, worth 156 trillion Macronesian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 166,113 Macronesian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and Socialist Macronesian politics is literally a blood sport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Macronesia's national animal is the rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist Macronesia is ranked 44,839th in the world and 1,035th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,306.35 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
