The Socialist People's Union of Midterra is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Matteo Tolensese with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.92 billion Esperidəns are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient midterrian economy, worth 483 trillion Esprils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 165,666 Esprils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, Matteo Tolensese has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Midterra's national animal is the striped wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Midterra is ranked 248,651st in the world and 491st in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
