The Republic of Milanisca is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Milan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.032 billion Milaniscans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ascentious. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Milaniscan economy, worth 292 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,482 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, the nation's school children are fluent in Klingon but lack basic mathematical skills, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Milanisca's national animal is the Blue Albino Porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Milanisca is ranked 259,069th in the world and 1,310th in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -8.29 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
