The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 42.939 billion Midlandsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 33,706 trillion sand dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 784,992 sand dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,590,560 per year while the poor average 63,007, a ratio of 72.9 to 1.

The nation leads Capitalist Paradise for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption, the justice of Midlands is considered superior to that of other nations, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Midlands is ranked 139th in the world and 3rd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 41,511.36 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
