The Republic of Miklania is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.466 billion Miklanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Michaels. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Miklanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,604 trillion Shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 169,510 Shillings, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place, diaper sales are up, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Miklania's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Miklania is ranked 16,602nd in the world and 49th in The Western Isles for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 277.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
