The MikesHope Essence of Mikeswill is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.175 billion Will of Mike hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The powerhouse the Will of Mike economy, worth a remarkable 4,941 trillion Kisses a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 144,597 Kisses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, the nation is in perpetual campaign mode, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mikeswill's national animal is the Dream Mirror, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mikeswill is ranked 8,388th in the world and 26th in NationStates for Most Developed, scoring 88.41 on the Human Development Index.
