The Grumpy Old Sage of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an even hand, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, enslaved workforce, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 17.276 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,331 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. Average income is an amazing 250,745 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Mediobogdumian grocery store, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and glassy-eyed Mediobogdumian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command. 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 Gyr Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 4,180th in the world and 64th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 11,085.37 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
