“Because original Michag wasn't oppressive enough” Jimbo
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Incorporated States of New Michag is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jimbo with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.146 billion Michiganders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Contigo. The average income tax rate is 58.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient New Michigandian economy, worth 117 trillion Soup Cans a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,517 Soup Cans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
The tenet of free speech is held dear, Jimbo's office is running a trade deficit of midnight oil, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and new legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending Jimbo". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Michag's national animal is the M1 Abrams, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
