The Smokey ElderGrump Sage of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an even hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 11.631 billion Mediobogdumians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 68.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,706 trillion Golden Denari Glitters a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 232,682 Golden Denari Glitters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mediobogdum's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mandaeism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 164,828th in the world and 6,747th in the West Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -29.77 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
