The Peace and Love Child of MikesHope is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.813 billion MikesHopeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient MikesHopean economy, worth a remarkable 6,924 trillion Kisses a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 193,361 Kisses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, 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 13,038th in the world and 110th in NationStates for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,444.14 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
