CapitalUnsophisticate City


The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.454 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unsophisticate City. The average income tax rate is 2.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 1,812 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 280,823 kals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous, Unsophisticatean athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. 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 94,909th in the world and 5,254th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 668.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
