The MikesHope Essence of Mikeswill is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Toltec Nagual with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 25.441 billion Will of Mike are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Naguals de Paz. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.
The large but stagnant the Will of Mike economy, worth 242 trillion Kisses a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 9,544 Kisses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Anti-government web sites are springing up, all 'unconventional' weaponry has been banned, citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mikeswill's national animal is the Dream Mirror, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
