The Free Land of Ungoverned shethole is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 601 million Ungoverned shetholeans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Social Policy also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of like seriously just plain shet. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ungoverned shetholean economy, worth 58.6 trillion shets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 97,521 shets, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 668,460 per year while the poor average 5,110, a ratio of 130 to 1.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, and sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ungoverned shethole's national animal is the shetty dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ungoverned shethole is ranked 2,539th in the world and 8th in The Western Isles for Rudest Citizens, with 198.06 Insults Per Minute.
