I've been playing tabletop RPGs since the early '80s, mostly as a GM. Currently I'm running a Twilight: 2013 campaign and playing in a Star Wars: Edge of the Empire campaign.

comment I'm not a DM anymore. How do I adjust to being a player again?
As someone who spent years almost exclusively GMing then found himself as a player 2/3 of the time, this answer really rings true.

comment Introducing an unorthodox setting the players know NOTHING about
I'm currently confronting this issue with Numenera. Giving the players a sense of what day-to-day life is like in the Ninth World takes some effort. While the core book provides a wealth of geographic and political information, there are really only a couple of pages that explicitly define the cultural framework. It's difficult to foster a sense of immersion when players are struggling to understand the basics of how people operate in the game world.

Does the supplement answer your question, but in a less than satisfactory way?

It looks like someone at Catalyst reads RPG Stack Exchange. They've just released Coyotes, a 5th edition sourcebook that covers border crossings: rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/123829
