The Susan Tankatha Johnson of Midland South States is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Johannes Houchens with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.838 billion Midland South Statesians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oured. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Midland South Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,292 trillion NorCon Dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 216,390 NorCon Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', Midland South Statesians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Midland South States's national animal is the space invader, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

Midland South States is ranked 152,718th in the world and 31st in International Northwestern Union for Most Primitive, scoring -359.23 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
