Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 27.543 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 16,402 trillion sand dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 595,522 sand dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,951,147 per year while the poor average 68,144, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, and the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Midlands is ranked 6th in Korel and 119,143rd in the world for Best Weather, with -4,309 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
