The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 36.426 billion East Borlandists are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lair. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient East Borlandian economy, worth an astonishing 31,939 trillion Slaves a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is a breathtaking 876,844 Slaves, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,321,214 per year while the poor average 38,970, a ratio of 162 to 1.

To 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase, the stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from His Supreme Eminence's rear echelons, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, and the nation refuses to provide international aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. East Borland's national animal is the Gila Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Oppression.

East Borland is ranked 238,403rd in the world and 104th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Pacifist, with 0.72 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
