OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 26.162 billion Midlandsians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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.

Midlands City is a police state during international summits, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, and Midlands's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. 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 132nd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 26 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
