The Patriotic Peoples Democracy of Michael VII is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chief Oligarch Michael Linehan with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 9.315 billion Michaeleans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frbiba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.
The all-consuming Michael VIIian economy, worth a remarkable 1,095 trillion Federal Reserve Tenders a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 117,584 Federal Reserve Tenders, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.
Euthanasia is legal, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, and Red Cross demand for body bags are rising while sutures are decreasing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Michael VII's national animal is the Californian Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Holy Mackerel.
