The Incorporated States of Financial District is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Midas Bank Representative Masakaki with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.17 billion Financial Districtians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Midas Bank Plaza. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Financial Districtian economy, worth a remarkable 2,077 trillion Midas Monies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 114,320 Midas Monies, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', Midas Bank Representative Masakaki's mistress is the belle at many state balls, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Financial District's national animal is the Asset, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is LaVeyan Satanism.

Financial District is ranked 240,472nd in the world and 8,310th in Lazarus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 32.85 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
