The Allied Corporate Empire of Northern Borland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President and CEO with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 34.665 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 36,504 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 1,053,065 Greenbacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,582,415 per year while the poor average 105,131, a ratio of 53.1 to 1.

It is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. 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 208,479th in the world and 361st in Capitalist Paradise for Lowest Crime Rates, with 1.14 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
