The Neo-Medwindian Empire of Medwind is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Frank Gallagher with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.199 billion Medwindians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stillwater. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Medwindian economy, worth a remarkable 1,554 trillion Kats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 298,966 Kats, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,307,244 per year while the poor average 43,134, a ratio of 30.3 to 1.

Medwindians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, getting a haircut is a punishable offence, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and nihilistic thrill-seekers claim that suicide by roller coaster is the ultimate life experience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Medwind's national animal is the American Alligator, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Medwind is ranked 116,542nd in the world and 68th in Union of Allied States for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 43.33 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
