The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.973 billion Unsophisticateans 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 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. The average income tax rate is 9.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 2,054 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 frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 294,637 kals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. 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 6,864th in the world and 346th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6,537.56 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
