The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.864 billion Unsophisticateans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unsophisticate City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 2,558 trillion kals a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 325,347 kals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,151,625 per year while the poor average 66,364, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Movie references are legally admissible in court, a video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Unsophisticate's national animal is the wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Unsophisticate is ranked 97,432nd in the world and 5,916th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 260.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
