The State of Medai is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Secretary-General Torstein Lahti with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.42 billion Medians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Medapolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Median economy, worth a remarkable 1,107 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 149,297 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 472,618 per year while the poor average 35,983, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises, weather reports simply advise Medians to 'look outside', and multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Medai's national animal is the seagul, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Medai is ranked 12,378th in the world and 632nd in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 1,107 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
