The Rogue Nation of The Country Without a Name is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Overlord of the Highest Order with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.691 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 4,114 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 424,555 tons of uranium, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,215,407 per year while the poor average 15,724, a ratio of 204 to 1.

The studies of art and philosophy are banned, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around The Lost City, citizens must pay to enjoy The Country Without a Name's pristine beaches, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. 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 1,120th in the world and 17th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 18,460.12 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
