The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.083 billion Unsophisticateans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unsophisticate City. The average income tax rate is 44.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 5,946 trillion kals a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 492,109 kals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs, and kitchen patrol is dominated by ten-year-old runts. 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 180th in the world and 42nd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 247,781 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
