We need far more explanation about a lot of things, but the show creators have apparently deemed us unworthy of learning it. There's plenty of interesting material that could be explored - for instance the leverage that Gilead presumably holds over other countries in the world, due to their (presumably) having nuclear weapons or some other magic death card up their sleeve. You'd think they would at least have some characters talk about this stuff, second or third hand, if not outright showing scenes of the inner workings of the Gilead government...but they have other priorities, clearly.
