The Peace and Love Child of Mikes Truth is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 40.456 billion Mikes Truthians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sobriety. The average income tax rate is 92.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Mikes Truthian economy, worth an astonishing 12,371 trillion Dream Mirrors a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 305,803 Dream Mirrors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government has been criticized for giving away Mikes Truth's territory to anyone who claims it, no one cares when it's your birthday, all astronauts are hot twenty-something models selected because they have 'the right stuff', and tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mikes Truth's national animal is the Love Essence, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Mikes Truth is ranked 1,978th in the world and 21st in NationStates for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 53 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
