The Federal Republic of Mukolayiv is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marshall Gorov with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.627 billion Mukolayivans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nikolayev. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mukolayivian economy, worth a remarkable 1,281 trillion Kuporas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,513 Kuporas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags, tumbleweed drifts through the nation's shopping centres during the weekends, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mukolayiv's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox Greek Christianity.

Mukolayiv is ranked 212,094th in the world and 178th in New Western Empire for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.22 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
