Much of the region's territory is dominated by the Salxar mountains, from which it gets its name. The southern part is less elevated and contains part of the Laişyn plain. The larger settlements are concentrated in this area, including the capital Jaţe, located on the banks of the Kaşar river.
The 2020 census recorded a population of 185.145, making it Gylias' least populated region.
The main Gylic peoples in the area are Rezakans, Yaskans, and Aréş.
Makarces has historically been a left-wing stronghold. At the same time, the region's mainly rural population has not been receptive to tendencies of aristerokratia and socialised luxury, leading to gains by the Movement for Emancipation and Democracy and Revolutionary Rally during the wretched decade.
