The Federal Republic of Michelland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chief of the FCM with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.18 billion Michellandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port-Hypnon. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Michellandian economy, worth 723 trillion PQS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 173,091 PQS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, autocrats are persona non grata, and sports fans complain that cricket tests now last an unbearable ten days. Crime is totally unknown. Michelland's national animal is the Castor roux, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Michelland is ranked 260,339th in the world and 406th in Refugia for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.7 crimes per hour.
