Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Mike the Progressive is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Robot Nixon with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 8.6 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 13.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mike the Progressivean economy, worth a remarkable 1,039 trillion USDS a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 120,875 USDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Handsome young men are forced into uniforms by their dominant elders, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, and personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 99,968th in the world and 118th in Westphalia for Most Authoritarian, with 0.18 Stalins.
