The Bavarium Producer of Medici Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Sebastiano Di Ravello with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.287 billion 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citate Di Ravello. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Medician economy, worth 777 trillion Medicias a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 236,521 Medicias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 769,364 per year while the poor average 54,782, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy, and tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Medici Empire is ranked 1,943rd in the world and 15th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 14,980.56 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
