The Democratic States of Middle South Hill is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.316 billion Middle South Hillians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hilltop. The average income tax rate is 48.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Middle South Hillian economy, worth a remarkable 1,458 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 141,356 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Leader will only ring up foreign leaders if they agree to reverse the charges, some magnifier-wielding Middle South Hillians say Leader seems a little lacking in something, adults have never outgrown their fear of monsters, and an underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle South Hill's national animal is the beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Middle South Hill is ranked 244,893rd in the world and 452nd in The Free Nations Region for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2.94 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
