The New Republic of Michaliav is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by President Linos Delod with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working population of 964 million Michaliavians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Backadosiá. The average income tax rate is 36.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Michaliavian economy, worth 89.5 trillion Michalnems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 92,870 Michalnems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Vaccinations are mandatory, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, President Linos Delod has just been declared ruler of Michaliav in an international press conference, and government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Michaliav's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Michaliav is ranked 218,785th in the world and 87th in Greater Cyngland for Most Extreme, scoring 5.21 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
