The Bavarium Producer of Medici Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Sebastiano Di Ravello with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, parental licensing program, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.083 billion Medicians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citate Di Ravello. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Medician economy, worth 721 trillion Medicias a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 234,058 Medicias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 693,878 per year while the poor average 61,975, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Atheists are heavily taxed, airport security is provided by private companies, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and any girl that shows an interest in Lego is pressured to study engineering. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Medici Empire's national animal is the Medician Bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Medici Empire is ranked 41,624th in the world and 59th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 11.2 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
