The Grumpy Old Santa of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.903 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,018 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 252,707 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens tint their front windows to avoid starring in the 'TV Detector Patrol Unit' documentary, citizens pray for sunshine so that they can use illicit sundials for timekeeping, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. 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 Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 210,330th in the world and 5,647th in the West Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -9.25 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
