Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 26.953 billion Midlandsians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business 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 15,876 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 589,044 sand dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,104,904 per year while the poor average 29,305, a ratio of 140 to 1.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. 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 1,467th in the world for Safest, scoring 1,901.849 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
