The People's Republic of Mishenkonia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 502 million Mishenkonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vladimirovgrad. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Mishenkonian economy, worth 24.8 trillion Zars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 49,453 Zars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, Max Barry is this year's Miss Mishenkonia, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and no one is worried about government policies any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mishenkonia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mishenkonia is ranked 186,583rd in the world and 2nd in Mishenkia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
