The Empire of Unknown is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.904 billion Unknownians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous government prioritizes Law & Order, with Environment, Social Policy, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 53.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Unknownian economy, worth 318 trillion Unknowns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 21,350 Unknowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is reining in public spending, elections have been outlawed, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and the police force is on a recruitment drive. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Unknown's national animal is the Unknown.

Unknown is ranked 70,270th in the world and 1st in Incognita for Most Corrupt Governments, with 12.98 kickbacks per hour.
