Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 30.454 billion Midlandsians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 19,520 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, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 640,985 sand dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,048,480 per year while the poor average 79,370, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

Farmers complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, the police insist that racism does not exist, the education system is famed for its taxing exams, and Blueriver mercenaries routinely do the army's dirty work. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Midlands is ranked 178,003rd in the world and 7th in Korel for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 6.58 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
