The Giftcard scammers are nerds of Please Understand is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Juan Ponce de Leˇn with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.064 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fallegogljˇt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Borklandic economy, worth 293 trillion Kr˘nas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 95,777 Kr˘nas, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

It is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Please Understand's national animal is the Red Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hellenism.

Please Understand is ranked 161,820th in the world and 36th in Pagan Rose for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 22.32 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
