The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.322 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 populace harbors a fierce hatred of the metric system, bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 10th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 40 on the Hayek Index.
