The Grand Holy Imperial Empire of General Mike is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Imperial Über Kaisführer Michael I with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 34.396 billion Michaeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mikegrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Michaean economy, worth an astonishing 11,280 trillion hyperinflated dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 327,974 hyperinflated dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and Imperial Über Kaisführer Michael I signs the laws but abides by none of them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. General Mike's national animal is the Vietcong, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is some sort of cult.

General Mike is ranked 2,109th in the world and 107th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 14,511.25 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
