Macónia—State Affairs for Kids

A modern, funny and immersive book for children aged 6-12, depicting Macónia, a small island country of bears. The book intends to introduce the core values and ideas of liberal democracy, as well as the mechanisms that make it tick. It covers checks and balances, media usage, manipulation, the free market, pluralism, tolerance, foreign affairs and more, topics and knowledge that are missing from our public education curriculum.
