The MikesHope Essence of Mikeswill is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 40.528 billion Mikes live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient the Will of Mike economy, worth a remarkable 8,422 trillion Kisses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 207,828 Kisses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, the media have begun calling the government treasury "Mike's stash", and candidates celebrate "free speech" by spraying champagne all over anyone who shows up to a rally. Crime is totally unknown. Mikeswill's national animal is the Dream Mirror, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Mikeswill is ranked 1,258th in the world and 6th in NationStates for Smartest Citizens, with 214.05 quips per hour.
