The Peace and Love Child of MikesHope is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mike with an even hand, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 34.877 billion MikesHopeans 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient MikesHopean economy, worth a remarkable 5,434 trillion Kisses a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,825 Kisses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, women no longer need to pepper conversations with incessant references to fictitious husbands, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MikesHope's national animal is the Dream Mirror, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

MikesHope is ranked 81,773rd in the world and 292nd in NationStates for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,305.91 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
