The Mother of The Unity Sisters is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Unity Council with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.462 billion Lost Ones are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crown. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Lost One economy, worth a remarkable 1,354 trillion White Matters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 181,477 White Matters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The country has essentially become 7.462 billion nations within a nation, The Unity Council is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, stern tutting by international commentators has persuaded The Unity Sisters to disarm, and the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Unity Sisters's national animal is the Eye, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Crekanakailonka Vilinackalink.

The Unity Sisters is ranked 133,735th in the world and 4,228th in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,131.3 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
