Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 30.715 billion Midlandsians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 19,804 trillion sand dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 644,767 sand dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,927,711 per year while the poor average 86,966, a ratio of 33.7 to 1.

Robosexual marriages are increasingly common, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, and new urban roads are threatening city parks. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Midlands is ranked 162,717th in the world and 6th in Korel for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -89.05 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
