The United States of Midlands is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 39.785 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 aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Midlandsian economy, worth an astonishing 29,963 trillion sand dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 753,129 sand dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Baiting is a national sport, unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Midlands's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Midlands is ranked 241,492nd in the world and 331st in Capitalist Paradise for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -76.75 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
