The Grumpy Old Sage of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an even hand, and remarkable for its fear of technology, ubiquitous missile silos, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 17.087 billion Mediobogdumians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,284 trillion Denaris a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 250,754 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mediobogdum's national animal is the Gyr Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 1,478th in the world and 28th in the West Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,765.85 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
