The Republic of Miklania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 11.493 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. The average income tax rate is 21.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Miklanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,867 trillion Shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 162,456 Shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector. Crime is relatively low. 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 218,268th in the world and 180th in The Western Isles for Most Secular, with 2.11 Atheism Rate.
