The Borderlands of Unsophisticate is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.259 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 2.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unsophisticatean economy, worth a remarkable 5,352 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 403,705 kals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, and foreign football clubs wave the Unsophisticatean flag before every game. 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 894th in the world and 56th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,571.22 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
