Medwedia, officially the Medwedian Democratic Federation (Medwedisk Demokratisk Føderatjon in Medwedian), is a totalitarian dictatorship located in northwestern Uletha. It borders UL160 and Uleroåland to the south, Läxland and Pohjoismaa to the southwest, Norðurland to the west and the Great North Sea as well as the Northern Ice Sea to the east. It shares a maritime border with UL151a. Notable for its variety of landscapes ranging from the intense agricultural plains of Hedbymark to the treeless tundras, glaciers and ice-deserts of northern Fjørdland, Medwedia is rich in natural resources such as coal, iron, aluminium and uranium.
Ravaged by frequent civil wars and conflicts with its neighbors, the country was first unified in 1769 and is currently ruled with an iron fist by the "National Collectivist", neofeudalist, far-right Medwedisk Folksparti. The small elite, headed by the dictator Theodor Lynden Frankenstein, treats the country as its personal property. Significant portions of the population are serfs employed in mega-farms or slaves toiling in work camps and mines. The government profits off this cheap labor, which is sold to other rogue states and international corporations.
The official language is Medwedian, a North Gaermanic language with significant West Gaermanic and Syrillangan influences. The state religion is the Medwedian Orthodox Christianity, a Christic faith altered by the government to cater for its propaganda purposes. The Medwedian Democratic Federation is notable for its large and poorly-equipped armed forces and the extensive State Security apparatus used by the government to crack down on dissent. Despite the extreme poverty of the population, Medwedia posesses a fairly modern motorway and rail network built in the 20th century to fulfill the needs of the military. The nation is also known for its nuclear arsenal, which it frequently uses as a "bargain" in diplomatic negotiations.
"Medwedia", the stylized abbreviation of the term "Medwedian lands" that was used to refer to the areas controlled by the city of Medwed (which is the capital now) in the Middle Ages, comes from the Karolic-Ugric language of the original inhabitants of Medwedia. It is derived from the word "medveaz", which means "the first" or "ancient" and refers to the fact that Medwed was the first Gaermanic settlement in the area.
