The Commonwealth of Mikaelan Island is a tiny, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 14 million Mikaelan Islandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.
The very strong Mikaelan Islandian economy, worth 889 billion Mesoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. Average income is 63,533 Mesoes, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mikaelan Island's national animal is the Flamingo, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
