The Kingdom of Middle Ages is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by ANCIENT ALIENS with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, avant-garde cinema, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.43 billion Middle Agesians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chester. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.

The powerhouse Middle Agesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,400 trillion Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 166,176 Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 978,051 per year while the poor average 13,136, a ratio of 74.5 to 1.

Scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, and the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Middle Ages's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Christianity.

Middle Ages is ranked 21,314th in the world and 7th in The Snowy Peninsula for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 227.96 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
