The Kingdom of Middle Predor is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Albin with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, infamous sell-swords, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.685 billion Predorians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esterden. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.9%.

The all-consuming Predorian economy, worth 406 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,310 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Esterden" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle Predor's national animal is the Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church Of The Sky.

Middle Predor is ranked 1,560th in the world and 1st in Skyreach for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,715.56 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
