The Peripatetic Praise-giver of Middlemidden is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Malcolm with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.068 billion Middlemid Guardians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perineum. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 113,260 perfectly balanced golden frogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
