Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 27.121 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, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 16,034 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 591,223 sand dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,662,303 per year while the poor average 41,179, a ratio of 88.9 to 1.

The government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, the government has enacted freedom of information, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. 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 3rd in Korel and 35,193rd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 84 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
