The Incorporated States of New Michag is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jimbo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 857 million Michiganders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Contigo. The average income tax rate is 52.9%.

The all-consuming New Michigandian economy, worth 81.4 trillion Soup Cans a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,988 Soup Cans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in New Michag, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, the only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Michag's national animal is the M1 Abrams, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Michag is ranked 172,230th in the world and 7,081st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4.12 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
