The Peace and Love Child of MikesHope is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mike with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 32.824 billion MikesHopeans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 87.7%.

The frighteningly efficient MikesHopean economy, worth a remarkable 4,292 trillion Kisses a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,784 Kisses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

If a tree falls in the forest Mike is personally notified, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, MikesHopeans seem to be catching more chills, and beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 24,294th in the world and 33rd in NationStates for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 75.9 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
