The Rogue Nation of The Country Without a Name is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Overlord of the Highest Order with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.711 billion idiots are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lost City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Country Without a Namean economy, worth a remarkable 5,075 trillion tons of uranium a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 433,370 tons of uranium, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,055,754 per year while the poor average 3,941, a ratio of 1,028 to 1.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Country Without a Name's national animal is the Higgs Boson, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Technology.

The Country Without a Name is ranked 1,423rd in the world and 56th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 261.54 Insults Per Minute.
