Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 29.71 billion Midlandsians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 18,650 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 Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 627,748 sand dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,064,165 per year while the poor average 38,865, a ratio of 104 to 1.

Every week is blindness awareness week, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. 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 39,039th in the world and 4th in Korel for Largest Governments, scoring 20.76 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
