The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep south Borland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The compassionate population of 22.472 billion Deep south Borlandians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Survivors receive aid from only the most environmentally-friendly transport, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Deep south Borland after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deep south Borland's national animal is the Lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is The Truest Fairy Tale Ever Told, and its currency is the Sacrament.

Deep south Borland is ranked 162nd in Wysteria and 112,914th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -52 on the Hayek Index.
