The Grumpy Old Santa of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.264 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,118 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. Average income is an amazing 253,212 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Appendix transplant figures have recently doubled, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, the ban on cars has been repealed, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Mediobogdum to be bombproof. 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 Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 27,291st in the world and 451st in the West Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10,596.73 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
