The United States of Mike the Progressive is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Robot Nixon with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.859 billion Mike the Progressiveans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twin Peaks. The average income tax rate is 36%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery industries.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, citizens must pay to enjoy Mike the Progressive's pristine beaches, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mike the Progressive's national animal is the bald eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the USD.

Mike the Progressive is ranked 1st in Westphalia and 6,748th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 74 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
