The Borderlands of Lost Memories is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Clavis Memoriae with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and public floggings. The compassionate, devout population of 16.893 billion Lost Memories are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Environment, with Education, Social Policy, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Forgotten economy, worth 790 trillion Cherries a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,798 Cherries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, all astronauts are hot twenty-something models selected because they have 'the right stuff', the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Lost Memories is often a lifetime appointment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lost Memories's national animal is the Fruit Tree, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lost Memories is ranked 60,063rd in the world and 3rd in Glitch for Most Primitive, scoring 38.6 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
