The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.65 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 tiny, 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 9.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 4,668 trillion kals a year, is broadly 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 400,720 kals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets. 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 2,577th in the world and 149th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.98 on the Human Development Index.
