The Empire of Midshire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Princeps with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.888 billion Midshireans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dundee. The average income tax rate is 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Midshirean economy, worth a remarkable 8,092 trillion pints a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 509,349 pints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, and the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies. Crime is totally unknown. Midshire's national animal is the worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Midshire is ranked 1,208th in the world and 1st in Gay Equality for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 28,281.32 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
