The Bavarium Producer of Medici Empire is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by General Sebastiano Di Ravello with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 994 million Medicians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citate Di Ravello. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Medician economy, worth 133 trillion Medicias a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 134,677 Medicias, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 505,229 per year while the poor average 25,089, a ratio of 20.1 to 1.

School lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, and state-sanctioned torture is okay so long as there's no icky blood. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Medici Empire's national animal is the Medician Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Medici Empire is ranked 98,768th in the world and 290th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Poor Incomes, with 25,089.17 Standard Monetary Units.
