Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 notable for its closed borders, ban on automobiles, and ritual sacrifices. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 26.498 billion Deep south Borlandites 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 Spirituality, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Deep south Borlandite economy, worth 467 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Furniture Restoration industry. Average income is 17,626 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Research into 'designer babies' is banned, the government is seen to favor Catholics, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is The Truest Fairy Tale Ever Told.

Deep south Borland is ranked 139,053rd in the world and 70th in Wysteria for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 42.26 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
