The Grumpy Old Grinch of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Immaculate Munchiness with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.779 billion Mediobogdumians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 5,950 trillion Pizza Slices a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 273,233 Pizza Slices, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Female brains are believed to heat up dangerously when 'overclocked', police and sick people alike fear the Day of Rest as all institutions are forced to shut down, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and citizens are deeply regretting challenging the government to be honest about its intentions. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem. Mediobogdum's national animal is the Gyr Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 16,127th in the world and 253rd in the West Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 360,538 Standard Monetary Units.
