The ❇❇❇❇❇❇❇ of Please Understand is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dracula's FiancÚ with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.997 billion Borkenlanders 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fallegogljˇt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Borklandic economy, worth 451 trillion Vronšs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 112,976 Vronšs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 409,283 per year while the poor average 22,233, a ratio of 18.4 to 1.

The nation's school children are fluent in Klingon but lack basic mathematical skills, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, posters of politicians in sensual poses can be found on the walls of teenagers' rooms, and pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Borklandic roads. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Please Understand's national animal is the Giant Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ptolemy.

Please Understand is ranked 146,882nd in the world and 23rd in Mardigras for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -4.47 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
