The Murabian Protectorate of Unthank is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Provost Lanark with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.052 billion Unthankics are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Spirituality also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unthank. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Unthankful economy, worth a remarkable 2,617 trillion coppers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 325,078 coppers, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Lord Provost Lanark's questionably sane new coalition partners. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Unthank's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Unthank is ranked 18,468th in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Saint Norm for Largest Black Market, with 26.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
