The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, flagrant waste-dumping, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 38.821 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, although Defense, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 28,710 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 739,561 sand dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,853,322 per year while the poor average 76,531, a ratio of 50.3 to 1.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, the native owl population is in permanent hibernation, and interest in globalism never flags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Midlands is ranked 35,594th in the world and 54th in Capitalist Paradise for Nudest, with 200 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
