The Communist Republic of Microneia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dan with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.441 billion Microneians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Microneia City. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Microneian economy, worth 155 trillion Microns a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 108,136 Microns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eminent domain has been abolished, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, and believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Microneia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Microneia is ranked 36,028th in the world and 1,876th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,122.43 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
