The Republic of Mediocre Talents is a massive, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.168 billion Mediocrites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Languorous Daydream. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mediocre Talentsian economy, worth 242 trillion Toothpicks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,623 Toothpicks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mediocre Talents's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mediocre Talents is ranked 56,577th in the world and 937th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,707.31 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
