The Republic of Middearth is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wendy Wind with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 2.488 billion Middearthians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riverdell. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Middearthian economy, worth 322 trillion Meas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 129,517 Meas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Middearth has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, and nation-building is the new national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middearth's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Middearth is ranked 40,332nd in the world and 2,302nd in Lazarus for Most Cultured, scoring 70 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
