|Leader||Queen Summer Agireul|

The Kingdom of Upper Michigania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Summer Agireul with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, otherworldly petting zoo, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.467 billion Upper Michiganians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marquette. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Upper Michiganian economy, worth 317 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 128,766 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
A newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Upper Michiganian as 'your finger, you fool', organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and amorous nobles always bring the same disappointing gift to weddings. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Upper Michigania's national animal is the gryphon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Defending the Many Regions of the World.
