The Gerontocratic Patriarchy of Upper Nowhere is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Christopher Lee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.907 billion Upper Nowhereans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kilminster. The average income tax rate is 32.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Upper Nowherean economy, worth a remarkable 1,057 trillion shillings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 270,604 shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Stale 'yo mamma' insults have been replaced by 'your maternal DNA' insults, people with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags, and bar brawls are an hourly occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Upper Nowhere's national animal is the hog-nosed bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Scam.

Upper Nowhere is ranked 17,436th in the world and 22nd in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Economic Output, with 1,057 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
