The Empire of Midshire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Princeps with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.689 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Dundee. The average income tax rate is 2.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Midshirean economy, worth a remarkable 9,064 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 512,442 pints, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime is totally unknown. Midshire's national animal is the worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Midshire is ranked 279th in the world and 1st in Gay Equality for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 18,758.63 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
