The Susan Tankatha Johnson of Midland South States is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Johannes Houchens with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 22.331 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 4,961 trillion NorCon Dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,189 NorCon Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

First-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, and there is something rotten in the state of Midland South States. 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 1,863rd in the world and 2nd in International Northwestern Union for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 98.39 Effective Tax Rate.
