The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, fear of technology, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 33.198 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 340 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Basket Weaving industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 10,265 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, schoolchildren are arrested for possessing sidewalk chalk without a permit, the populace harbors a fierce hatred of the metric system, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deep South Borland's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Truest Fairy Tale Ever Told.

Deep South Borland is ranked 155,141st in the world and 71st in Wysteria for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -160.93 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
