The Borderlands of Technical Difficulties is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by InLeo with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, disturbing lack of elderly people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.879 billion Technical Difficultiesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Static. The average income tax rate is 73.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Technical Difficultiesian economy, worth 732 trillion dogecoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 188,856 dogecoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Technical Difficulties's national animal is the manta ray, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Technical Difficulties is ranked 24,164th in the world and 9th in Ridgefield for Most Stationary, with 660.66747300588 Days.
