The Desert Town of Borrego Springs is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Desert Environmentalist with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, hatred of cheese, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 16.723 billion Borrego Springsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Christmas Circle. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Borrego Springsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,388 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 262,409 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and putting a mustache on a banknote is considered defacing a national monument. Crime is totally unknown. Borrego Springs's national animal is the big horned sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Environmentalism.

Borrego Springs is ranked 207,590th in the world and 3rd in The Desert for Most Avoided, scoring 0.15 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
