OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 26.023 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing.

The nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. Crime is crippling. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the sand dollar.

Midlands is ranked 1st in Korel and 144th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 23 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
