The Confederacy of Michigonia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 7.738 billion Michigonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Social Policy receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 42.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Michigonian economy, worth 455 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,802 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Solid-gold toilets are Michigonian prisons' least expensive furnishings, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and most Guilder coins are riddled with bite marks. Crime is totally unknown. Michigonia's national animal is the Brown Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
