The MikesHope Essence of Mikeswill is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 36.487 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient the Will of Mike economy, worth a remarkable 6,671 trillion Kisses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Average income is an impressive 182,856 Kisses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'Dream Mirrornado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. 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 204,184th in the world and 507th in NationStates for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -28.84 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
