The Mikalan Empire

Population4.177 billion



The Scandinavian-Style Republic of The Mikalan Empire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.177 billion Mikalans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Healthcare, with Administration, Education, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parlavak. The average income tax rate is 51.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mikalan Empirean economy, worth 221 trillion Teuvlas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,909 Teuvlas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, homophobia is off the menu, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown. The Mikalan Empire's national animal is the Axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Mikalan Empire is ranked 274,216th in the world and 127th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.82 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
