The Republic of Michigan AU is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Albert Sleeper with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.948 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 1,234 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, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 249,404 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the tightness of border controls in Michigan AU leave a little to be desired, monster hunters with oversized swords roam the land, and cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on President Albert Sleeper's desk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Michigan AU's national animal is the White-tailed Deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Evangelical Christianity.

Michigan AU is ranked 92,497th in the world and 3rd in Alternate Earth for Safest, scoring 75.51 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
