The Commonwealth of Zemper Macro is a massive, safe nation, notable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.71 billion Macroans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Proto. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Macroan economy, worth 299 trillion Minos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 63,617 Minos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zemper Macro's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
