The Murabian Protectorate of Unthank is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Provost Lanark with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, triple-decker prams, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.209 billion Unthankics enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Spirituality is also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment are ignored. 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 4,022 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 Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 358,892 coppers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,121,957 per year while the poor average 88,086, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

Religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, dining out often involves dragons on the plate no matter what you order, chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, and the stacked neck-ring is this season's hottest fashion item. 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 91,290th in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Saint Norm for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,067.41 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
