The Holiest of the Holy Lands of Deep south Borland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Supreme Holy Eminence with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 22.514 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.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Sacrament mansions, people have to sneak out of the country in order to have sex, there is a dearth of space for new houses, and kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun". 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 162nd in Wysteria and 113,848th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -423 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
