The United Socialist States of Mik Jer Amear is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.057 billion Mik Jer Amearians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Mik Jer Amearian economy, worth 40.3 trillion Amear Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 19,575 Amear Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Mik Jer Amear City as a backdrop, the Mik Jer Amearian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mik Jer Amear's national animal is the Black-Winged Kite, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
