The Democratic Commonwealth of Medallion is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Steel Armoured Maxwell with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.907 billion Medallionish are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maxwell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.5%.

The all-consuming Medallionish economy, worth 332 trillion Medals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 114,292 Medals, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 501,938 per year while the poor average 16,363, a ratio of 30.7 to 1.

Citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, the term "Native Medallionish" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, the government spends millions of Medals every year prosecuting spammers, and the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Medallion's national animal is the Cobra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Maxwellism.

Medallion is ranked 217,161st in the world and 11th in Etherea for Least Corrupt Governments, with 59.69 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
