The Confederacy of Michigonia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 5.951 billion Michigonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Social Policy receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 27.4%.

The Michigonian economy, worth 363 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,130 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Solid-gold toilets are Michigonian prisons' least expensive furnishings, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and most Guilder coins are riddled with bite marks. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Michigonia's national animal is the Brown Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Michigonia is ranked 122,425th in the world and 108th in The Western Isles for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -1.98 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
