Upper Michigania

FaithDefending the Many Regions of the World


The Grey Wardens of Upper Michigania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Summer Agireul with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.514 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 75.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Upper Michiganian economy, worth 534 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, Retail, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. 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 152,039 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Diplomats in Upper Michigania are furious at constant police surveillance, human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and ceremonial zweihänders are used in holy rituals. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Defending the Many Regions of the World.

Upper Michigania is ranked 233,996th in the world and 7th in Ravioli for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 18.38 tourists per hour.
