The Free Land of Midasgard is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 376 million Midasgardians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leifsborg. The average income tax rate is 82.6%.

The strong Midasgardian economy, worth 23.3 trillion Rings a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 61,993 Rings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Midasgard flights to avoid the pay lavatories, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, it is said that a Midasgardian woman's work is never done, and nudity is frowned upon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Midasgard's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Midasgard is ranked 20,752nd in the world and 68th in Wintreath for Lowest Crime Rates, with 79.81 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
