The Federal Republic of Mukolayiv is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Marshall Gorov with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.848 billion Mukolayivans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nikolayev. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mukolayivian economy, worth a remarkable 1,285 trillion Kuporas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 145,340 Kuporas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Nikolayev, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mukolayiv's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox Greek Christianity.

Mukolayiv is ranked 8,609th in the world and 35th in New Western Empire for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,745.6 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
