Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 29.525 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, is primarily concerned with 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 18,419 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 623,845 sand dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,852,483 per year while the poor average 43,796, a ratio of 88.0 to 1.

The education system is famed for its taxing exams, chickens roam the streets freely, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. 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 978th in the world and 1st in Korel for Smartest Citizens, with 173.27 Quips Per Hour.
