OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Murabian Protectorate of Unthank is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Provost Lanark with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.84 billion Unthankics enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Spirituality also on the agenda, 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 2,542 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 Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 324,273 coppers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,542,220 per year while the poor average 40,153, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

Dragon populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, and the government is eagerly awaiting a multi-million copper payment from a deposed Smalltopian monarch. 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 20,675th in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Saint Norm for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 38.41 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
