The Awakened City-State of Medab is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Learned Pinner with an even hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, feral children, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.536 billion Serviles enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Medab. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Servilian economy, worth 389 trillion slightly outdated gold coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 59,607 slightly outdated gold coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Servilian soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, confusing advertising has left citizens unsure if cults will either welcome them or try to kill them, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime is relatively low. Medab's national animal is the rogue creation, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Medab is ranked 73,703rd in the world and 1st in Norwegian Alliance for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10,165.38 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
