Power, water, telecom, postal services and many other government services have been privatised recently. Although business taxes are lower than in other nations, employees enjoy many more rights than in nations elsewhere. Environmental Regulations have failed to make an impact on the profitablility of business.

History

Ancient Times

Modern Mikoyan-Guryevich was one of the few places not reached by the human population until some time during the second century AD. The island of Barcelona was first discovered by merchant traders blown off course by a storm, who returned supposedly months later on an expeditionary mission. The traders christened the land 'Rayo'. Along with their way of life, the traders also brought ancient democracy to Rayo, and this crude system of parliament lasted for over seventeen centures. Although Rayo was one of the earliest nations to adopt true democracy, the system was highly subject to bribery.

The ancient inhabitents curiously did not stray outside the borders of the land which is now Barcelona Island, and either the remaining parts of the modern nation lay undiscovered for many centuries, or the inhabitants chose not to colonize the other land.

The capital and largest city of Rayo was Schigera, a bustling and important port city on the eastern coastline of Barcelona Island. Schigera was founded during the second century and has enjoyed a remarkably peaceful existence in its near 1900 years of existence. Schigera was home to approximately 500,000 people during the early 1500's.

Rayo existed as a near perfectly preserved piece of the Roman & Greek Empires. Its architectural styles and government were reminiscent of the two ancient empires, and remained largely intact due to the lack of foreign visitors to the nation. It is extremely hard to date ancient buildings as architectural stlyes effectively remained dormant for centuries. Unlike many nations, its isolation kept it from the Dark Ages and led to an extended golden period.

Discovery & Founding of Mikoyan & Guryevich

In the late 1500's, the landmass of what is now Mikoyan was discovered by sea faring traders, again lost and off course. The eastern seaboard of the nation is prone to many currents during the stormy, winter months. The traders then returned to the landmass the following summer, and claimed it as their own nation, named Carada after the ship they had discovered it upon.
