Archangel Michael

Population20.031 billion



The Heavenly Host of Archangel Michael is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by God with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 20.031 billion Hosts 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heaven. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Host economy, worth a remarkable 1,385 trillion Souls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,160 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, historical fiction has been banned, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Archangel Michael's national animal is the Angel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Grace.

Archangel Michael is ranked 28,905th in the world and 9th in Kingdom of Scotland for Smartest Citizens, with 49.96 quips per hour.
