The Awakened City-State of Medab is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Learned Pinner with a fair hand, and remarkable for its fear of technology, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.25 billion Serviles hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Welfare, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Medab. The average income tax rate is 59.1%.

The thriving Servilian economy, worth 129 trillion slightly outdated gold coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,451 slightly outdated gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", rioting and unrest sweep the nation, and Medab is renowned for its lax gun laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Medab's national animal is the rogue creation, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Medab is ranked 200,296th in the world and 116th in New West Indies for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -15.62 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
