Michel Meilleur

The Republic of Michel Meilleur is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.754 billion Michel Meilleurians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Michel Meilleurian economy, worth 197 trillion baht a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 112,365 baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, anti-government web sites are springing up, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Michel Meilleur's national animal is the porpoise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Michel Meilleur is ranked 16,924th in the world and 519th in The East Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 11.33 bananas ingested per day.
