The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.296 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unsophisticate City. The average income tax rate is 2.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 5,400 trillion kals a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 406,145 kals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. 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 2,794th in the world and 174th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.94 on the Human Development Index.
