The Republic of Michalak is a tiny, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 7 million Michalakians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 20.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Michalakian economy, worth 314 billion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,989 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
You can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs, some of the country's most famous photographers are animals, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, and parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Michalak's national animal is the mocking bird.
