OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.692 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.

'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, armed police units patrol the roads late at night, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil. 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 6th in Korel and 114,401st in the world for Best Weather, with -5,580 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
