The Republic of Middle Lorundepfastano is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ben with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, devout population of 1.079 billion Middle Lorundepfastanoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 57.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Middle Lorundepfastanoan economy, worth 74.6 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,149 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, torture is illegal, and teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle Lorundepfastano's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Middle Lorundepfastano is ranked 77,205th in the world and 1,581st in the Rejected Realms for Most Conservative, scoring 50.38 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
