The MikesHope Essence of Mikeswill is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 36.917 billion Will of Mike hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient the Will of Mike economy, worth a remarkable 6,624 trillion Kisses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 179,431 Kisses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, ceremonial zweihänders are used in holy rituals, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mikeswill's national animal is the Dream Mirror, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Mikeswill is ranked 9,233rd in the world and 83rd in NationStates for Highest Poor Incomes, with 106,329.89 Standard Monetary Units.
