The Democratic States of Middle South Hill is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its fear of technology, ban on automobiles, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.113 billion Middle South Hillians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt 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 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Middle South Hillian economy, worth a remarkable 2,083 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,898 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Leader is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, former public radio talk pundits are being deployed to front line war zones, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, and the government-run newspapers insist that everything is fine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle South Hill's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Middle South Hill is ranked 14,977th in the world and 14th in The Free Nations Region for Fattest Citizens, with 16.59 Obesity Rate.
