The Federal Union of Mydic Empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Basileus Leto IV Atronid with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.548 billion Mydians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mydare. The average income tax rate is 8.5%.

The Mydian economy, worth 151 trillion Valentes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,449 Valentes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Gun regulations are so strict even staple guns and hot glue guns are illegal, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, pre-schoolers who draw stick figures of their favorite celebrities are sued for infringing image rights, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mydic Empire's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Heracleian Church.

Mydic Empire is ranked 208,933rd in the world and 20th in Selene for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 29.68 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
