The Republic of Michigan AU is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Albert Sleeper with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.413 billion Michiganders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lansing. The average income tax rate is 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Michigander economy, worth a remarkable 1,115 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 252,739 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Michigander Liberator", and unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Michigan AU's national animal is the White-tailed Deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Evangelical Christianity.

Michigan AU is ranked 6,642nd in the world and 1st in American World for Most Armed, with 18.37 Weapons Per Person.
