The Magical Mediator of Mediobogdum II is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Antoninus with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.432 billion Mediobogdumians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herculaneum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdum IIian economy, worth a remarkable 2,850 trillion Aes signatums a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 173,492 Aes signatums, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Saying that someone looks a bit pale can be construed as hate speech, the government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health, foragers descend on national cemeteries for 'all-you-can-dig-up' extravaganzas, and student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mediobogdum II's national animal is the Lynx Vampire, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sun Worship.

Mediobogdum II is ranked 165,516th in the world and 5,965th in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring zero on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
