Wondering if the numbers have to be real?

Assuming they can be complex.

M=10000000i+sqrt3

N=-10000000i

the sum of M+N=sqrt3

MN=10^7m and if course no limit on that, so no limit on the product.

Now if M,N are restricted to the real domain.

let V=MN=(sqrt3-N)N

dV/dN=sqrt3-2N setting equal to zero to maximize, then N= .5 sqrt3

and M= N, same value, so MN=3/4
