The United States of Mike the Progressive is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Robot Nixon with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 9.25 billion Mike the Progressiveans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twin Peaks. The average income tax rate is 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Mike the Progressivean economy, worth a remarkable 1,123 trillion USDS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 121,470 USDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small caliber bullets, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, and President Robot Nixon's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mike the Progressive's national animal is the bald eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Mike the Progressive is ranked 162,245th in the world and 1,034th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -7.75 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
