The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.817 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.

Scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, the police force is on a recruitment drive, the bear is reportedly extinct, and shanty towns have formed around the newly rebuilt commercial district. 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 25th in the world for Largest Populations, with 25,817 Capita (millions).
