The Disputed Territories of Mid-Land is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 704 million Mid-Landians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petrogrov. The average income tax rate is 19.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mid-Landian economy, worth 64.5 trillion Golden Tokens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 91,652 Golden Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Mid-Land's hospitals, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, judges are all-powerful, and bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mid-Land's national animal is the Mid-Land Duckling, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Mid-Land is ranked 168,723rd in the world and 5,748th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 498.48 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
