The UB-32 of Socialist Macronesia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by John Ross with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.715 billion Socialist Macronesians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Ross. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Macronesian economy, worth 766 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 amazing 282,389 Macronesian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians look weirdly alike, it is well recognised that you can't sustain communism without a bit of spirit, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Socialist Macronesian beaches, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. 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 DShK, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Socialist Macronesia is ranked 36,563rd in the world and 1st in The 1985 Movie Clue for Rudest Citizens, with 81.25 Insults Per Minute.
