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 national health service. The compassionate population of 22.165 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.

Nudity is frowned upon, voting is voluntary, research into 'designer babies' is banned, and tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport. 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 163rd in Wysteria and 112,716th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -45 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
