The Grumpy Old Santa of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 15.435 billion Mediobogdumians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 3,945 trillion Denaris a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 255,616 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, there's a bustling black market for vegetables, Eagles have more rights than the average citizen, and the nation is known abroad for fast food and nothing else. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mediobogdum's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 113,259th in the world and 3,094th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 43.67 on the Rand Index.
