OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Federal Republic of United States of Michelus is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 363 million Michelians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 8.4%.

The very strong Michelian economy, worth 23.7 trillion US Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 65,161 US Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, military spending is on the increase, the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and the United States of Michelus Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. United States of Michelus's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

United States of Michelus is ranked 122,338th in the world and 3,763rd in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.49 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
