Also the people who are considered to be disruptive to society are rapidly eliminated or deported.

The outskirts of the land are more dangerous as there is no social pressure for people to behave and that is the place for the most antisocial and unpredictable people lives. Not all people living in the outskirts are antisocial or unpredictable though. There also lives some distinct small tribes with long history of wandering the deserted land. The tribes are naturally suspicious towards new people, but rarely outright aggressive, and they have some trade with the others.
