Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 remarkable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 25.795 billion Deep south Borlandites are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacrosanct City. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Deep south Borlandite economy, worth 437 trillion Sacraments a year, is driven almost 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 16,945 Sacraments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 16th in the world and 2nd in Wysteria for Best Weather, with 2,304 Meters Of Sunlight.
