The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President and CEO with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 36.069 billion Northern Borlandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 38,686 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 1,072,559 Greenbacks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,519,557 per year while the poor average 113,837, a ratio of 48.5 to 1.

Farm turkeys are given high doses of antidepressants to take their minds off the holiday season, more and more people are signing up for the government party, scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, and visions of giant pink Bucks are a common side effect after Northern Borlandians eat their meals. 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 5,183rd in the world and 19th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Black Market, with 386 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
