Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

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 notable for its frequent executions, fear of technology, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 23.402 billion Deep south Borlandites are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Deep south Borlandite economy, worth 479 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 20,493 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. 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, and its national religion is The Truest Fairy Tale Ever Told.

Deep south Borland is ranked 170th in Wysteria and 143,621st in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -3,732 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
