The Changing Pretitle of Middlemidden is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mx Middlegender Person with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.807 billion Middlemid Guardians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perineum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.1%.

The all-consuming Middenish economy, worth 248 trillion perfectly balanced golden frogs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 88,476 perfectly balanced golden frogs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 269,814 per year while the poor average 22,504, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Pizzerias must now display shrines to the Pizza God, children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Middlemid Guardians's kindness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middlemidden's national animal is the vacillating varmint, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Middlemidden is ranked 117,970th in the world and 11th in The UECA for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
