Medimeria is a colony of Burgundie and is represented as a member of the Burgundian Overseas Representative Assembly (BORA).

Etymology

St. Agnes Prison

St. Agnes is a private prison operated on Medimeria by the Dreyfuse Corporation. They hold an unofficial and unpublicised event each year that is streamed live on the dark web each year. The Jocs de llibertat (Eng. Games of Freedom) are a deathmatch between criminals who are sentenced to die. The winner is awarded a private cell with almost any request granted, short of release. This typically is satisfied with not having to adhere to dress codes and schedules, the services of prostitutes, meals of their choosing, and unlimited access to the commissary. The Dreyfuse Corporation is estimated to make $430 million off of the event each year. It is difficult for the Revenue Guard to determine exactly how much is brought in because access is purchased with cryptocurrency and funneled through a number of money laundering fronts before it reaches the Dreyfuse Corporation's coffers. While efforts to stop the practice have intensified in recent years, prisoners, as well as viewers around the world, have pushed back strongly.
