The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep south Borland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 22.092 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.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, there is a dearth of space for new houses, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, and Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Deep south Borland. 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 177th in Wysteria and 111,564th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -3,549 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
