The Protectorate of Macory is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Huan Chu III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 1.153 billion Macorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PyongSeoul. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Macoryian economy, worth 171 trillion McDollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 148,362 McDollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, and many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Macory's national animal is the Lion Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Proto-Tagalog.

Macory is ranked 83,325th in the world and 3rd in The Potato Alliance for Highest Economic Output, with 171 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
