The Currently in Hibernation of Midand is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Midaic Chairman Axel Vodden with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.629 billion Midandians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Midandia. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Midandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,202 trillion Midoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,431 Midoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**, the only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice, and strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Midand's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Midand is ranked 127,929th in the world and 4,822nd in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 233.38 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
