The Republic of Milanisca is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Milan with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.638 billion Milaniscans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ascentious. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Milaniscan economy, worth 780 trillion Milaniscan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,154 Milaniscan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Milanisca Blood Tithe, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, and skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Milanisca's national animal is the Blue Albino Porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Milanisca is ranked 32,590th in the world and 286th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 81.24 law-abiding acts per hour.
