The United States of Microwavelandia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Microwave with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.786 billion Microwavelandians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Microwavelandian Vaults. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Microwavelandian economy, worth 767 trillion Microcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 202,725 Microcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 757,672 per year while the poor average 37,990, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

Foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Microwavelandian Vaults Microwaves' triumph against long odds, hell is not always other people, nobody is quite sure what the government's last policy decision was but fans are saying it'll make Microwavelandia great again, and the doctor has cold hands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Microwavelandia's national animal is the Microwave, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is No Official Religion.

Microwavelandia is ranked 16,319th in the world and 303rd in the West Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 28.39 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
