The Grumpy Old Sage of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 15.392 billion Mediobogdumians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 3,934 trillion Denaris a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 255,616 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, there's a bustling black market for vegetables, Eagles have more rights than the average citizen, and the nation is known abroad for fast food and nothing else. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mediobogdum's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 78,818th in the world and 2,562nd in the West Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 64.67 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
