The Peace and Love Child of MikesHope is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 34.42 billion MikesHopeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.1%.

The frighteningly efficient MikesHopean economy, worth a remarkable 5,267 trillion Kisses a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 153,037 Kisses, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

It's rare to find an unchewed pencil, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, the government is spending billions of taxpayer Kisses to support "struggling" industries, and insanely good theatre productions face government censorship. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. MikesHope's national animal is the Dream Mirror, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

MikesHope is ranked 74,047th in the world and 332nd in NationStates for Most Stationary, with 135.4885243984 Days.
