The MikesHope Essence of Mikeswill is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 40.54 billion Mikes 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 enormous, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient the Will of Mike economy, worth a remarkable 8,451 trillion Kisses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 208,470 Kisses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime is totally unknown. Mikeswill's national animal is the Dream Mirror, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Mikeswill is ranked 13,683rd in the world and 294th in NationStates for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5,462.28 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
