The Retired Player of Midand is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Midaic Chairman Axel Vodden with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.82 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 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Midandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,389 trillion Midoes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,685 Midoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, and Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts. 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 5,769th in the world and 183rd in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,118.85 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
