The Kingdom of Michas is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.881 billion Michasians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Michasian economy, worth a remarkable 2,989 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 302,597 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,793,166 per year while the poor average 3,249, a ratio of 859 to 1.

The children of Michas are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, government policy is dictated by a major religion, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Michas's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Michas is ranked 239,865th in the world and 198th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -13.04 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
