The Peace and Love Child of MikesHope is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 38.986 billion MikesHopeans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Education, Administration, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient MikesHopean economy, worth a remarkable 6,402 trillion Kisses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 164,214 Kisses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,060,418 per year while the poor average 10,239, a ratio of 103 to 1.

In its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes, Mike's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in MikesHope, and it's rumored that Marche Noire knows what the nation's generals eat for breakfast. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. MikesHope's national animal is the Dream Mirror, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

MikesHope is ranked 6,788th in the world and 51st in NationStates for Smartest Citizens, with 112.45 quips per hour.
