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 otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 30.043 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, prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 18,998 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 632,391 sand dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,036,384 per year while the poor average 76,907, a ratio of 39.5 to 1.

Midlands-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. 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 10,155th in the world and 2nd in Korel for Most Pro-Market, scoring 81.56 on the Rand Index.
