Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 28.659 billion Midlandsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 17,380 trillion sand dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 606,464 sand dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,704,832 per year while the poor average 84,482, a ratio of 32.0 to 1.

The government is outsourcing itself, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Midlands's many privately-owned prisons, and skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Midlands is ranked 6th in Korel and 143,351st in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -2,096 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
