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 remarkable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 36.999 billion Deep South Borlandeese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government prioritizes Administration, with Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Defense and Industry receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The average income tax rate is 28.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Deep South Borlandite economy, worth 153 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is 4,146 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, babysitters are a thing of the past, and document forgery is a critical skill for would-be politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 205,020th in the world and 50th in Wysteria for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 170.17 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
