The United States of Mike the Progressive is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Robot Nixon with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.964 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.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twin Peaks. The average income tax rate is 8.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mike the Progressivean economy, worth 766 trillion USDS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 110,118 USDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

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 a capable 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, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Mike the Progressive is ranked 23rd in Westphalia and 105,742nd in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -196.85 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
