The Democratic States of Middle South Hill is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 7.949 billion Middle South Hillians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hilltop. The average income tax rate is 69.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Middle South Hillian economy, worth a remarkable 1,134 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. 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 142,762 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

All writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Leader, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, and dining out often involves beavers on the plate no matter what you order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle South Hill's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Middle South Hill is ranked 172,341st in the world and 407th in The Free Nations Region for Nudest, with 74 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
