The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.132 billion Unsophisticateans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unsophisticate City. The average income tax rate is 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 3,053 trillion kals a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 334,357 kals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Unsophisticate's national animal is the wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Unsophisticate is ranked 170,685th in the world and 9,223rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 7.51 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
