The Peripatetic Praise-giver of Middlemidden is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Malcolm with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.712 billion Middlemid Guardians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, 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 51.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Middenish economy, worth 806 trillion perfectly balanced golden frogs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 120,218 perfectly balanced golden frogs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, East Lebatuck tests its moon rovers in the barren wasteland of rural Middlemidden, and new urban roads are threatening city parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middlemidden's national animal is the vacillating varmint, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Middlemidden is ranked 41,484th in the world and 93rd in Forest for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 237,479 Standard Monetary Units.
