The Incorporated States of New Michag is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jimbo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.109 billion Michiganders 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Contigo. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Michigandian economy, worth 111 trillion Soup Cans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,672 Soup Cans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, leakers release information by etching graffiti on bathroom stalls, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and native tribes have been driven to extinction by hunting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Michag's national animal is the M1 Abrams, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Michag is ranked 34,743rd in the world and 1,354th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 53.51 Whatever.
