Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 29.331 billion Midlandsians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 18,160 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 619,148 sand dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,469,895 per year while the poor average 27,380, a ratio of 163 to 1.

Personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Midlands is ranked 52,586th in the world and 7th in Korel for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
