The Grumpy Old Sage of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.57 billion Mediobogdumians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 3,532 trillion Denaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 242,469 Denaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in the West Pacific, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and billions of Denaris are spent to take high-quality photos of the Eagle Nebula. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mediobogdum's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.
