Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of The Most Serene Empire of Mike is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Hakarl III with an even hand, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, devout population of 3.222 billion Mikes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siorcanna. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mikean economy, worth 125 trillion Mikes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,990 Mikes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over The Most Serene Empire of Mike, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Most Serene Empire of Mike's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.
