We welcome The Republic of Michiganders Unite (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Michiganders+Unite), as the 246th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Republic of Michiganders Unite is a tiny, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million are either ruled by a small, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2%. A healthy private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Basket Weaving and Cheese Exports.
Crime is a major problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Michiganders Unite's national animal is the paradoxataur and its currency is the dollar.
