The Peace and Love Child of Mikes Truth is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mike with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working population of 36.169 billion Mikes Truthians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sobriety. The average income tax rate is 70.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Mikes Truthian economy, worth a remarkable 6,087 trillion Dream Mirrors a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 168,295 Dream Mirrors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

"Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese, and tax assessment offices double as polling stations. Crime is totally unknown. Mikes Truth's national animal is the Love Essence, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Mikes Truth is ranked 69,256th in the world and 155th in NationStates for Most Pro-Market, scoring 52.56 on the Rand Index.
