Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 26.773 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, 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 15,692 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 586,131 sand dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,734,497 per year while the poor average 37,909, a ratio of 98.5 to 1.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists. 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 1st in Korel and 116th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 28 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
