The Smokey ElderGrump Sage of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.3 billion Mediobogdumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 66.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,394 trillion Golden Denari Glitters a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 211,943 Golden Denari Glitters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Many are questioning Septimius Severus wearing an Eckie-Ecola baseball cap during a keynote speech, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, the new universal healthcare system has been dubbed Septimius Severus-care by its detractors, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime, especially youth-related, is 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 24,136th in the world and 947th in the West Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.67 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
