The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep south Borland is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate population of 21.333 billion are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic 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.

Citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, the national government has been dissolved by revolutionary insurgents, religious classes are compulsory for all school students, and Deep south Borland's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over Wysteria. 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 20th in Wysteria and 25,644th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.097 Stalins.
