The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 38.412 billion Midlandsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 28,156 trillion sand dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 733,001 sand dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, much of Midlands's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Midlands is ranked 11,866th in the world and 64th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 5,538.95 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
