|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Republic of Mikayla Van Buren is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its burgeoning eagle population. The hard-working population of 12.274 billion Mikayla Van Burenians 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 government prioritizes Law & Order, with Environment, Defense, and Education also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Industry receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 24.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Mikayla Van Burenian economy, worth 458 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 37,367 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens select which government department gets their income tax dollars each year, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and Mikayla Van Buren's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over Topid. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mikayla Van Buren's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
