The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep south Borland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate population of 21.964 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.

A crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the judicial system legislates morality, and voting is compulsory. 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 194th in Wysteria and 111,919th in the world for Most Average, scoring -9,481 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
