The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 36.486 billion Northern Borlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commerce City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Borlandian economy, worth an astonishing 39,348 trillion Greenbacks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 1,078,452 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,875,282 per year while the poor average 101,585, a ratio of 57.8 to 1.

No cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, the diplomatic corps stinks, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Northern Borland's national animal is the Buck, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Northern Borland is ranked 5th in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Rudest Citizens, with 2,229.87 Insults Per Minute.
