The MikesHope Essence of Mikeswill is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mike with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 36.881 billion Will of Mike hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austin. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient the Will of Mike economy, worth a remarkable 6,580 trillion Kisses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,422 Kisses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Will of Mike, and the news is showing footage of Mike bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mikeswill's national animal is the Dream Mirror, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

Mikeswill is ranked 10,823rd in the world and 70th in NationStates for Most Secular, with 91.62 Atheism Rate.
