The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.017 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 relatively small, 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 33.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 3,748 trillion kals a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 374,212 kals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, there's no representation without taxation, and newspapers are celebrating Leader saving over a million cats from trees. 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 1,858th in the world and 102nd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.02 on the Human Development Index.
