The Unknown Sovereignty of Unknown Sovereignty is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Unknown Sovereign of the Shadows with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, flagrant waste-dumping, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.028 billion Nameless People 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 tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonesteel. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unknown Sovereigntyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,666 trillion Dusks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 221,673 Dusks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, all transmission towers have been temporarily diverted in order to establish dialogue with a comet, and the tawdry celebrity gossip section has moved to the front page of most newspapers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Unknown Sovereignty's national animal is the Shadowhound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Order of Chaos.

Unknown Sovereignty is ranked 87,209th in the world and 30th in Mordor for Most Developed, scoring 52.17 on the Human Development Index.
