The Republic of Great Middle is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic population of 688 million Middleans 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 government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Midpolis. The average income tax rate is 59.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Great Middlean economy, worth 67.4 trillion Midoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,959 Midoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and the government is giving peace a chance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Middle's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Middle is ranked 88,594th in the world and 20th in Blackstar for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 136,626 Standard Monetary Units.
