The Incorporated States of New Michag is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jimbo with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.083 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 large, 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 57.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Michigandian economy, worth 107 trillion Soup Cans a year, is quite specialized and 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 99,208 Soup Cans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. 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.

New Michag is ranked 223,948th in the world and 8,317th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.94 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
