The Borderlands of Nothreen is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.563 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, is solely concerned with Industry. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nothreenian economy, worth 642 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 Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 250,794 Noos, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,363,121 per year while the poor average 2,079, a ratio of 1,136 to 1.

The standard government reply to any query is "there is no spoon", biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, millions of simultaneously backfiring toilets have flooded Nothreen City with effluent, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. 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 82nd in the world and 6th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 153.28 Crimes Per Hour.
