"Welcome to eternal mediocrity. Welcome to The Medium Place."
—Beadie

The Medium Place is a realm of afterlife existence created specially for Mindy St. Claire.

History Edit

The Medium Place has at most only been around since the 1980s, when Mindy St. Claire died, and both The Good Place and The Bad Place argued for an unknown period of time over who should get her. Eventually they came to a compromise, and created a new realm of mediocre existence for Mindy to live in by herself for the rest of eternity. Since it has only one resident, there isn't even a neighborhood as such, just one house and a railway station, the nameboard of which reads "Neighborhood: [N/A]".

Although the events of Chapters 14 and 15 move the setting on by a few hundred years, Mindy St. Claire is still the only resident. This is because of the Jeremy Bearimy timeline that lead to it being the same time as before.

Inhabitants Edit

Mindy St. Claire is the only person that resides in The Medium Place.

Through their various iterations, the main characters have visited 30 times in various combinations, and frequently considered staying so as to escape from Michael. However they have always chosen to return to Neighborhood 12358W.

In Chapter 22, Derek is sent to the Medium Place as both a diversion in the escape plan and a present to Mindy.

Life in the Medium Place Edit

The Medium place was created to be neither comfortable nor painful for Mindy. It has the appearance of a single beige house with one small garden in the middle of a barren plain resembling that of the Great Plains in America or the Australian outback.

When Mindy was first admitted to the Medium Place, she gave The Good Place a list of the things she wanted and the Bad place made a few modifications to the list, like how they gave Mindy her favorite beer but it is always warm, or how her jukebox has every song ever but only by the Eagles (live versions only), as well as spoken word poetry by William Shatner, which Trevor describes as deeply terrible.

There is no sign that the Medium Place has its own Janet, though it is known that there are different Janets for the Good and Bad Places. Since Mindy is the only occupant of the Medium Place, it is possible that a Medium Place Janet was not created for the sole use of one person.
