The Grumpy Old Sage of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, enslaved workforce, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.817 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 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,238 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 252,046 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pizzerias must now display shrines to the Pizza God, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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 Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 494th in the world and 15th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 5,314 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
