The Colony of Michine is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its national health service, aversion to nipples, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 900 million Michiniennes are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Michine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.1%.

The powerhouse Michinien economy, worth 63.4 trillion roubles a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 70,444 roubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 204,309 per year while the poor average 19,236, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, prohibition has allowed a Maxtopian immigrant known only as "Nipples" to establish an illicit breast milk syndicate, soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Michine. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Michine's national animal is the loach, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Michine is ranked 27,712th in the world and 17th in Axiom Supercluster for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,041.36 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
