OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, socially progressive 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 25.841 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 children of Midlands are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. 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 3rd in Korel and 16,253rd in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 73 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
