The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep South Borland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 34.998 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, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 438 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 12,542 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, a stitch in time could see you serving nine, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and His Supreme Holy Eminence is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn. 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 205,748th in the world and 79th in Wysteria for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -122.09 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
