The Borderlands of Nothreen is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.217 billion Nothreenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nothreenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,327 trillion Noos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 374,449 Noos, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,693,617 per year while the poor average 16,766, a ratio of 160 to 1.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, the nation's countrysides are littered with landmines due to ongoing family disputes, politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nothreen's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Nothreen is ranked 82,092nd in the world and 3,125th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,332.92 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
