The Exalted Supremacy of East Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Supreme Eminence with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.006 billion East Borlandists are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Social Policy not funded at all. 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 24,648 trillion Slaves a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 770,128 Slaves, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,450,106 per year while the poor average 106,430, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.

Neighboring nations are tired of East Borland's big fish stories, police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, foreign musicians that His Supreme Eminence dislikes are turned away at the border, and billions of Slaves are being blown on orbital weapons development. 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 9,856th in the world and 22nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 5,511.27 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
