The Empire of Makko Oko is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Conall Solis with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.245 billion Makko Okoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opposh. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Makko Okoan economy, worth 941 trillion slottoes 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, Cheese Exports, 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 179,505 slottoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 627,644 per year while the poor average 37,310, a ratio of 16.8 to 1.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, everyone apparently sends Emperor Conall Solis hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, and the military is plagued with unethical researchers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Makko Oko's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Satanism.

Makko Oko is ranked 273,178th in the world and 55th in The Alliance of Dictators for Fattest Citizens, with 7.06 Obesity Rate.
