The Incorporated States of New Michag is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jimbo with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.472 billion Michiganders 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Contigo. The average income tax rate is 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Michigandian economy, worth 177 trillion Soup Cans a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,606 Soup Cans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 9,680th in the world and 462nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 7,659.24 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
