United Midwestern Great Lakes States

Population383 million


The Republic of United Midwestern Great Lakes States is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its digital currency, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 383 million United Midwestern Great Lakes Statesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong United Midwestern Great Lakes Statesian economy, worth 22.7 trillion blueberries a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 59,178 blueberries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

United Midwestern Great Lakes Statesian Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Midwestern Great Lakes States's national animal is the wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Midwestern Great Lakes States is ranked 7,236th in the world and 18th in The Union of Democratic States for Safest, scoring 123.49 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
