The Borderlands of Nothreen is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.439 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 a remarkable 2,962 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 398,278 Noos, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,865,037 per year while the poor average 17,833, a ratio of 160 to 1.

The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, survivors of the Great Internet Flame War often recount horror stories of banhammers and DOS attacks, and patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises. 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 240,913th in the world and 8,187th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -30.98 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
