The Rogue Nation of The Country Without a Name is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Overlord of the Highest Order with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.463 billion idiots are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lost City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Country Without a Namean economy, worth a remarkable 4,964 trillion tons of uranium a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 433,084 tons of uranium, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,053,079 per year while the poor average 3,939, a ratio of 1,028 to 1.

In a fit of passion Supreme Overlord of the Highest Order has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, mechanics are often exhausted by their work, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Country Without a Name's national animal is the Higgs Boson, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Technology.

The Country Without a Name is ranked 205,215th in the world and 7,635th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -2.99 Effective Tax Rate.
