The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 36.869 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, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 32,653 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 frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 885,675 Slaves, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,223,914 per year while the poor average 42,888, a ratio of 145 to 1.

The nation's entire cultural heritage is being auctioned off to the rich, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, both criminals and civilians are DOA, and many are questioning His Supreme Eminence wearing an Eckie-Ecola baseball cap during a keynote speech. 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 245,123rd in the world and 121st in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.27 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
