The 烟熏的老长老幽灵圣人 of Mediobogdum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Septimius Severus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, disturbing lack of elderly people, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.866 billion Mediobogdumians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gariannonum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Mediobogdumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,822 trillion Denaris a year, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 203,547 Denaris, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

In its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes, diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, people on the brink of death are put through unwanted and stressful procedures, and police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Mediobogdum's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Mediobogdum is ranked 24,412th in the world and 648th in the West Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 201.77 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
