Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.3 billion Unsophisticateans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unsophisticate City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The all-consuming Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 1,363 trillion kals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 257,183 kals, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli. Crime is totally unknown. Unsophisticate's national animal is the wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Unsophisticate is ranked 36,826th in the world and 1,637th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,860.7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
