The Patriotic Peoples Democracy of Michael VII is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Oligarch Michael Linehan with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.716 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frbiba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Gambling and Arms Manufacturing.
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 the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is The Church of Holy Mackerel, and its currency is the Federal Reserve Tender.
