Nepal came by. Really?

 That's not even a country I think about as having the interwebs. Apparently, though, Nepal is totes connected to the net. So, welcome to Eff You nation, right?

Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is "the world's 93rd largest country by area[11] and the41st most populous country. It is a landlocked country located along the Himalayas and bordered to the north by China and to the south, east, and west by India. Nepal is separated from Bangladesh by the narrow Indian Siliguri Corridor and from Bhutan by the Indian state of Sikkim. Kathmandu is the nation's capital city and largest metropolis."

Eight of the world's ten tallest mountains are in Nepal, including the big boy, Mount Everest. The people there are mostly Buddhist. The country used to be a monarchy until 1990. A lot of changes since then, including a Maoist government. Go figure.

Nepal's economy basically sucks, partly because it has a Maoist government, partly because things are actually pretty unsettled as to who is in charge, and partly because they really have nothing going for them, economically.

In 2010, agriculture accounted for 36.1%, services comprised 48.5%, and industry 15.4% of Nepal's GDP.[89] While agriculture and industry are contracting, the contribution by the service sector is increasing.[89][90]Agriculture employs 76% of the workforce, services 18% and manufacturing and craft-based industry 6%.[citation needed] Agricultural produce – mostly grown in the Terai region bordering India – includes tea, rice, corn, wheat, sugarcane, root crops, milk, and water buffalo meat. Industry mainly involves the processing of agricultural produce, including jute, sugarcane, tobacco, and grain. Its workforce of about 10 million suffers from a severe shortage of skilled labor.[citation needed]
I don't know where you go from there. Let's face it, this is your ace in the hole:

In any event, yo, Nepal, welcome to Eff You nation. Thanks for coming by, come back soon, and bring your friends.
