The Commune of Borq is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Council of Four with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.953 billion comrades hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Public Transport, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vosarb. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Borqian economy, worth a remarkable 1,627 trillion diamond coins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,690 diamond coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, The Council of Four's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Borq's national animal is the Borqian Warmblood, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Borq is ranked 240,634th in the world and 163rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -42.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
