The Republic of Mediocre Talents is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.711 billion Mediocrites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Languorous Daydream. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediocre Talentsian economy, worth 213 trillion Toothpicks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,801 Toothpicks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care, balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mediocre Talents's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mediocre Talents is ranked 193,606th in the world and 2,113th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 27.5 billion Standard Monetary Units.
